Priced at less than £100, Lightroom has already eclipsed Photoshop to become the photographers’ software of choice. With a no-risk approach to editing, it’s the best tool for RAW files and provides the simplest way to create an archive of your growing image library. This course provides an introduction to Lightroom’s organisational, editing and printing tools and is suitable for a beginner.

The Course will be held on Windows PC laptops running Lightroom 4.
