Adobe Updater Deletes Lightroom 6: Here’s How to Get It Back

For all of your Adobe Ligtroom users who are still using Lighroom 6 take note!  Tom Turner, the Lightroom teacher for The Creative Light, wanted you all to receive this link to help you out. 

“If you use Lightroom 6 and don’t have any plans to switch to Adobe’s subscription software, here’s a warning: don’t run the Lightroom updater through Adobe’s download manager with default settings. It will delete your Lightroom 6 and install Lightroom CC instead.”  Go to the link below to read the entire article.

Double Dose of Adobe Lightroom

Spring brings many good things and for The Creative Light it brings a double dose of Lightroom learning.  If you are interested in studying Adobe Lightroom join us on Saturday May 6th for Lightroom Workflow: Lightroom Lite and then Saturday May 13th for the next step with Lightroom: The More Advanced Workflow.  Both workshops are four hours long and will be taught by Tom Turner, a Lightroom expert.

The Lightroom Workflow: Lightroom Lite will help you conquer your fear of new software and turn your good shots into GREAT shots.

This course is designed to give you a dynamic understanding of the workflow available through Adobe Lightroom. You will learn the tools to manage your catalogs of digital photographs along with the tips and tricks offered by the camera RAW presets built within the software. You will discover how to edit and tone your images in a variety of styles, add effects, and manage your catalogs with keywords, metadata, and smart collections.

And then the next week, Tom Turner will teach the participants how to use Lightroom in a more complete way in Lightroom: The More Advanced Workflow workshop.  He will cover advanced keyword searching to create smart catalogs, the print book, slideshow and web modules plus much more.  This workshop will put you in the driver’s seat and give you the ability to take your images to that next level of excellence.
If you are a beginner with Adobe Lightroom then here is the opportunity to delve into this software in a complete way by taking these workshops back to back.  If you already know a little about Lightroom but want to advance your skills the May 13th workshop is the place for you to accomplish that goal. It will be a great opportunity to learn more about Lightroom and ask those nagging questions that have been slowing your progress.  We hope you will take advantage of this double dose of Lightroom learning and join us.  You can get more information about these workshops by going to www.thecreativelight.info.   If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Nancy Cavender Garcia by email or feel free to call at 210-367-0724.

Inspiring Classes for Creative Minds

The Creative Light hopes your 2016 was a great year and as the new year dawns upon us it is time to make 2017 even more creative.  When you are creative you turn new ideas into reality.  You think and then you produce but without the act of production your creativity is lost. 

We are born naturally creative but through time our creativity is stifled, we learn to color in the lines.  In this new year spend time developing your creative skills, build on your foundation of knowledge, explore and experiment.  Practice your skills and develop your creative muscles. 

The Creative Light has many new classes posted which are designed to help you exercise those creative muscles.  Look at www.thecreativelight.info to see the possibilities and if you have any questions please call Nancy at 210-367-0724 or email thecreativelight@gmail.com to discuss the perfect class for you.
