Adobe Lightroom is a great solution for importing, organizing, and adjusting the ever-increasing number of digital images we capture. This course will cover strategies for categorizing images and creating collections / folders to better prioritize.

Organizing digital photos can be overwhelming, but not with Adobe Lightroom Classic. This course will help you learn how to apply metadata and copyright information to each of your images, to keep your hard work protected.

You can apply keywords to individual or batched files, to help filter images to find them easily. You can even tag faces right in Lightroom.
