This online workshop teaches how to build your perfect photo catalog, and how to import and export images in Adobe Lightroom using automatic presets. The workshop is an extended version of the onsite class on cataloging.

The entire course on Adobe Lightroom consists of three workshops, where each of them is concentrated on one of the three steps of the photo editing workflow:

There is no limitation on your current Lightroom experience for this class. Beginners will learn how to organize their work from the scratch, while advanced users will reveal the power of metadata and increase efficiency with new techniques.

Together with importing and exporting routines you will learn in-depth techniques of keywording and applying metadata attributes, multi-criteria searching in photo catalog, organizing photos in multiple collections for different purposes, and more.

This class offers quizzes and assignments to testing your new knowledge and skills. All successful attendees receive Isigma Photo course graduation certificate. Best students get the Badge of Excellence award.
