Use Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom Classic Together
Tuition $450 ‑ $650
Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom Classic are a powerful team you can use together to enhance your photos and create anything you can imagine. In this two-day weekend workshop you’ll learn how and when to take photos back and forth between Lightroom Classic and Photoshop so you can make your photos look their best, use them creatively, and keep them organized. We’ll focus on practical scenarios in which it makes most sense to use Photoshop and Lightroom together, including compositing, retouching, replacing backgrounds, and adding creative effects. Along the way, you’ll practice popular techniques and level up your skills in both programs. This class is for you if you already have some experience with both Photoshop and Lightroom Classic. You don’t have to be an expert, but knowing your way around layers and selections in Photoshop, as well as importing and basic editing in Lightroom Classic will help you get the most out of this workshop. This workshop meets via Zoom Video Conferencing software (download free from Zoom.com). An Anderson Ranch staff member co-teaches the class and coordinates the online platform. Further details will be emailed to registrants.
