After the tea break Alan will be starting to look at Lightroom Basics for members who are not familiar with the software or may have just dipped their toes in.

Using the laptop he will demonstrate how using Lightroom can help improve and enhance your images using the Develop Module. To begin with Alan will be looking at how to quickly ‘Crop and Straighten’ your images. Next month ‘The Basic Panel’ will be covered to show how the Whites, Blacks, Highlights and Shadows can be easily adjusted using a few simple sliders to further improve and enhance your images. The overall idea is to move slowly though ‘the Develop Module’ month by month to build up an understanding of ‘Lightroom Basics’ and will include a handout as a reminder of what was discussed.
