October 2016 Lightroom Presentation
It was wonderful to have such and enthusiastic and interactive group of APS members along to my presentation on Thursday evening. After my own initial nerves it seemed to flow very well from what I had to show and what you members asked.
Some great moments of " OH Wow, is that how you do that"
Below is a list of things we covered, this may help jog your memory and inspire you to play and find out more.There are so many tools we did not get time for.
Also a few websites I use, but don't hesitate to Google search the answer there is SO much helpful info out there.
Or if you have a question why not ask it on the APS facebook page and I'll do my best to help.
In all cases HAPPY PLAYING
