I must say that George was excellent in his delivery of "Lightroom: Managing Files"....he explained each menu with detail without overwhelming. George was easygoing, yet very professional and knowledgable.
Thanks George for a fantastic introduction to Lightroom....

I took this course to learn the nitty-gritty of Lightroom Library module. The course contains a great overview of the library module, and gets into each section in detail. The instructor was knowledgeable and personable and explained each section well. he was able to provide numerous keyboard shortcuts to improve workflow with LR. He tailored his teaching to the needs of the participants. This course will greatly improve my ability to manage and organize my photos. Lightroom is an amazing software product, and this course is excellent at teaching how to use it to it's full potential. If you are new to Lightroom, I would highly recommend this course.
What a great way to learn. I don't like reading manuals. I need to be run though the program by someone showing me through. George, the instructor, did a great job explaining LR in a very simple way.
I am a PC user, but they used Mac Computors. No problem. It was explained and I got it. It was a no brainer.
You don't have to bring anything. Everything is supplied.
At the end of the course had a pretty good understanding of Light Room. I must practice all the the things I learned so i won't forget. The notes are given to at the end to help you go over the material again and again. Fantastic notes.
Oh yes, It is better to take Light Room #2 the next day so you have the flow of the material.
I would highly recommend taking these courses from Henry's Digital School of learning. Kudo's
