The May meeting of the Pagosa Springs Photography Club will be held on May 12 at 6:30 PM, via Zoom video conference. The program will feature Club member Doug Coombs, who will present “Lightroom Catalog Quick Start”. 

Doug is the co-founder of the Los Alamos Adobe Users Group in New Mexico. He is primarily a landscape and nature photographer, with an affinity for birds and wildlife. Doug now splits his time between Los Alamos and Pagosa Springs, with a generous amount of travel to photogenic destinations.

Not only does Adobe Lightroom Classic provide an excellent PC and Mac based post processing tool for digital photography, it also provides a superb cataloging system to aid in post processing and to organize images. In this talk Doug will mention the various versions of Lightroom but specifically discuss Lightroom Classic. He will show where the catalog and its images are stored on a PC, discuss some cataloging strategies and fundamental catalog settings. He will briefly show some organizational techniques he finds useful, how the catalog is a tightly coupled partner with Adobe Photoshop, and briefly discuss his backup strategy. The presentation will be made available to Club members and will contain many useful links to topics that users new to Lightroom may have not yet discovered.

Following Doug’s program, we will have a member’s image share session. Each Club member may submit up to five images for sharing and discussion.

Club members will receive an email with the Zoom link for this meeting. Others who are interested in watching May contact Andy Butler at for the link.
