Lightroom Tuition

Postby Mike Farley » Mon 07 May 2018, 09:43

Sandra has asked me to run through Lightroom with her and we have agreed a date of 12 June 2018 when she will come to my house for some tuition. If anyone else is interested, you are welcome to come along as well although I will be restricting the numbers to Sandra and two others to keep things manageable. Should there be a rush for places, it will be first come, first served.

We will kick off proceedings at around 9:30 am. There is no formal finish time, but I expect to be able to wrap things up by early to mid afternoon.

If you do want to come, I ask that you bring a laptop with Lightroom installed if you are already using it and submit a list of topics in good time ahead of the session so that I can structure the day so that everyone gets the most out of it. That does not rule out topics coming up ad hoc, but too many of those could prove to be a distraction and we might not achieve all our objectives.

If you want to come along, simply reply to this thread. I also request that you add your questions here as well so that everyone is aware of the agenda for the day, which I will also publish here. Questions can be submitted in one or more separate posts and do not have to be made at the same time as your meeting request.
Regards

Mike Farley

Hi Mike,
I purchased the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 on CD in Nov 2017 with the view of setting it up on my Desktop, which I have not done yet.
Checking on Google just now,it appears that one is permitted installation on both desktop and laptop.

I am rather busy this month what with preparing my Glimpses of Goa presentation and the last of the images for our two remaining competitions.
So I would only start looking at Lightroom at the beginning of June.

I am rather interested in learning how to use Lightroom.
Would I be too much of a newbie for the tutorials that you have kindly offered to hold?
I am currently doing simple changes in Photoshop 6.

Kind regards,
Iggy

That is what it says.

You should be aware that Adobe has implemented an activation scheme for its perpetual licence applications which works in a different way to the method it uses for Creative Cloud. If you want to transfer a copy of the software to another computer, you will need to deactivate it first. Simply uninstalling might leave the activation in place for that machine and there will be no option available to deactivate without reinstalling the application. Possibly the uninstall process will check that deactivation is required, which is the user friendly way to do it, but I do not know if Adobe does this.

You are welcome to sit in on this session, although I will be using Lightroom Classic CC which has a number of significant changes from Lightroom 6. However, there is sufficient similarity to allow you to follow along.

My bigger concern is that you have had the software for six months without installing it. You will get more from the session if you have some experience with it. Sure, I can show you what to do but actually using it is the only real way to reinforce the learning process.

For those setting out with Lightroom, I usually recommend Scott Kelby's books which take you through the process of setting up and using Lightroom from scratch. Unfortunately, the English version for Lightroom 6 appears to be out of print when I checked on Amazon. However, there are plenty of other books and resources available on the Internet if you do some research.

You could also try this book from Scott Kelby, although it does not appear to be a complete tutorial, more of a FAQ - https://www.amazon.co.uk/How-Do-That-Li ... ightroom+6.
