Prerequisites: Familiarity with Mac or Windows and use of Internet and e-mail is required. You must be able to navigate within the operating system and use the mouse with ease; knowing how to create folders, save, rename, back up, and retrieve files and documents without assistance is essential. Ability to move files from your camera’s memory card to a folder on your laptop are also required skills. Ability to use Dropbox or OneDrive will be important for information and file sharing in class. Prior experience with graphics tools is helpful but not required.
Please note: Students must have a laptop with Lightroom 6 or Lightroom CC installed and registered (a CC subscription costs $10 per month). Students who are unsure if they will use the product long-term may download and use a trial version for the first few classes. Students also need to bring a USB memory stick ($10) to enable sharing of their images during class.
