Course description

Learn photo editing using Adobe Lightroom in Sydney with this beginners course.

Learn to edit your digital photos using Adobe Lightroom Classic. Your photos don’t always match the scene the way you remember it. But with Lightroom, you have all the tools you need to bring out the best in your Photography . Punch up colors, make dull-looking shots vibrant, remove distracting objects and straighten skewed shots. Plus, the latest release includes powerful new ways to create incredible HDR images and panoramas, import and edit faster thanks to performance boosts, and so much more.

Lightroom is a clever and efficient way to enhance and manage your photos all in one place. From the makers of Photoshop, Lightroom lets you edit and improve your images, manages and then stores them. All your images in one place, at your fingertips and easy to find.

This course has been designed for photographers of all levels who use digital cameras to capture and store images. Course participants can start this course with an entry level of experience in Adobe Lightroom, from absolute beginner to occasional user.

No prior knowledge of Lightroom is assumed, and the course will start from the ground up and cover all the editing basics, and then guide you through all of the photographer workflow of image processing for enhanced quality and image management.

The primary focus is on Lightroom’s Library and Develop modules: the global and local adjustment tools, the Lightroom histogram, special effects conversions, corrections and recovery processes that are the essential tools for the modern photographer.

The course will provide you with the essential skills to create and manage the secure organisation and storage of your digital photographs. You will learn how to avoid the great disaster that occurs when computers or data storage devices crash and precious images are lost.

Lightroom has become the tool of choice for the world’s photographers, and the course begins with a thorough investigation of the Lightroom workspace, and from the initial download of images from the camera to the computer, to incorporating non-destructive processes and enhancing the end image quality. Participation in this class allows you to achieve competence in the control of the quality output of your images.

Other Information
  • Please note, all Adobe courses at Sydney Community College require a basic computer competency as a pre-requisite. We expect that you are able to confidently and quickly navigate the computer directory and be able to locate files with ease. Adobe programs are professional level programs and an inability to use a computer confidently will restrict you from progressing in the class. If you are unsure about your computer competency, please contact Customer Service so that we can arrange a call to discuss.
  • This is a crash course in Adobe Lightroom, the course facilitator will aim to fit as much in as possible but some of the above might not be covered in time. If you have a specific aspect of the program you are interested in learning then please let the tutor know.
  • This course runs in our CBD computer lab, which is fitted with 17 inch MAC computers, all installed with updated Adobe Creative Cloud programs. Adobe Premiere Pro functions the same on both Windows and Macintosh computers except for a few minor differences with keyboard usage.
  • As students will be working with their own personal images, students are required to bring along their own images on a laptop, to each session (so you can easily take your images home to edit without transferring on/off computers). You will be working on your own laptop in class. There will NOT be other computers available.

Avoid disappointment. Enrol early.

Please ensure that you have given a valid email and mobile number as all course changes will be communicated via sms or email.
