Lightroom Beginning   

Lightroom is fun! Ease of use and comprehensive features make Lightroom a good choice. In Lightroom, activities are gathered into modules. In the Library Module, you can easily organize your photographs into collections (albums). In the Develop module, developing your snaps is a snap. Students may use a computer in the lab or can bring in a laptop. If using a school computer, you'll need a large-capacity flash drive. A 128 MB flash drive is about $28. Windows users can use a flash drive or an external hard drive. Got a question? Ask the teacher, Jim Beecher, at Note #1 As of October, 2017, there are three versions of Lightroom, described below. I recommend that you purchase Lightroom 6 or Lightroom Classic CC. Don’t buy Lightroom CC. Here's the difference: 1) Lightroom 6: You own the program. The cost is about $150. You can download it or get DVDs. The program has not been updated since 2017. Go to 2) Lightroom Classic CC: Your photographs are stored on your computer. You subscribe to Lightroom Classic CC for about $10/monthly. For more information, go to Again, purchase one of the above versions. Be careful—don't buy the version below. 3) Lightroom CC: Your photographs are stored at Adobe (in the cloud). The interface is different from the above two versions. Lightroom CC is not used in our class. Note #2 - Windows Users Lightroom requires a 64-bit version of Windows. Press the Windows key + Pause key. Look for System Type. If you see 32-bit, contact Jim at Note #3 - Lightroom 5 Users If you're using Lightroom 5 on a laptop, you can use it in class. If you're using Lightroom 5 on your desktop computer, you'll need to get one of the above versions of Lightroom.
