about Lightroom4

Today I want to talk about this amazing program a bit and maybe introduce it to you for the first time... and although my Lightroom 4 class is geared towards scrapbook designers and how to photograph your pages, edit and watermark them in a few easy steps, this program is way WAY more than just that.

Let me tell you why I love it so much: I call it my workhorse. It lets me edit photos in batches... meaning that if I have 20 pictures that was taken of the same moment I can edit the first one... (adjust the exposure, add contrast, up the shadows, down the highlights) and then just click SYNC and it will edit all 20 right across the board.

In photoshop, to resize a photo or photos for facebook and any other platform, you have to do it one by one (unless you are running scripts) but in lightroom you can resize 269 photos with one click.
Add your watermark or logo to 269 with one click. (you can custom design a logo in LR)
Export 269 photos to one folder, renamed in sequence with one click.

Also, you can make the most beautiful story boards with lightroom. It works like magic as it uses "magnetic" alignment... so the photos "snap" together. LOVE THAT.

One of the main differences between Lightroom 3 and Lightroom 4 is LR4's amazing book module where you can create pdf documents on their variety of beautifully designed templates. (click the link to see more of the differences)

I really can go on and on all day. But I will show you in 11 videos and 1 hour and 45 minutes how to rock lightroom.

TODAY I am giving away one spot in my lightroom class. Just leave me a comment. and if you want to go ahead a buy the class, you can win your spot back.

also today on Paper Party you can see a tutorial of this page: (I created the blog board in lightroom4 under 30 seconds)








The winner of Amy Tan's class is: Patricia! Thanks for the chance at what sounds like a great class! peaname: momm

I've been on the fence about lightroom, think you just talked me into it :) If this class is anything like your Art class then it's going to be fab.

I'm going to echo what Emma up there said: I've been hemming and hawing about trying Lightroom -- your class would push me right into a decision. ;) Sounds great!

Thanks for explaining even more about the class. It sounds gorgeous. Thanks for the giveaway.

Emma... I try to make the explanaitions as simple and uncomplicatd as possible... But alas, it's only as creative as teaching you how to display your pages as best as possible. :). Artclass 2 is coming out in the fall this year. :)

I bought Lightroom several months ago, but I'm really not using it to its full potential. I often feel lost in it and go back to Photoshop. So I'd love a chance to win your class and see what your techniques are. Thanks!
