Adobe Lightroom CC Missoula, Montana

4/13/2019 - 4/14/2019

Adobe Lightroom CC is Adobe’s new software for photographers who need organizational and editing capabilities that can keep up with their busy lives. Adobe Lightroom CC stores your images on the cloud, so you can easily access them and edit them on any device through the desktop or mobile applications.

On top of these awesome features, the usability of Adobe Lightroom CC is surprising. Once we get you started on the right path with this program, you’ll be off and running for years to come!

Let us help you get your foundation all squared away in this thorough two-day workshop.

Students will walk away from this workshop with:

  • Raw image enhancement skills using Adobe Lightroom CC’s development tools
  • Understanding of cloud storage for your photos and how to maintain your organizational system
  • Comfortability with Adobe Lightroom CC’s machine-learning tools and AI search features
  • Practice sharing your favorite photos at lightroom.adobe.com and on social media

Important: There are now two versions of Lightroom. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic and Adobe Lightroom CC. RMSP has workshops for each program! Both versions of Lightroom have their own advantages and disadvantages and students should think carefully before choosing the one to learn. Watch the video below to learn more about the two versions and why you might want to choose one over the other!

  • Computer power cord

Experience has shown us that to get the most out of this software, you need far more powerful hardware than Adobe’s bare bones minimum suggestions. We recommend using a laptop with at least the specs below for maximum Lightroom efficiency.

At least 8GB of RAM
Lots of free hard drive space
