Join Julieanne Kost, Digital Imaging Evangelist at Adobe, to discover the tools and workflow that she uses to create unique and compelling images in Lightroom Classic and Photoshop.  You’ll start the first day with a deep dive into Lightroom Classic’s Library and Develop modules. Julieanne will share tips for importing, organizing, and creating collections, and sharing your imagery. Then, she’ll demonstrate techniques for using color, tone and contrast for maximum impact, apply edits to isolated areas of an image, eliminate unwanted and distracting elements, and reveal timesaving techniques for applying, customizing, and saving presets to achieve your creative vision faster than ever before.

In the afternoon session, Julieanne will show you how to enhance your photography and expand your creativity with Adobe Photoshop. You’ll discover new features and hidden gems for retouching, selecting, masking and compositing. She’ll demonstrate how you can incorporate Gen Fill and additional Artificial intelligence tool in your workflow to eliminate repetitive tasks – leaving you more time for creative exploration.  If you’re tired of weeding through hours of tutorials trying to find practical Lightroom Classic and Photoshop techniques and hidden gems that are relevant in your work, then this class is for you.
