This month’s Photography Club meeting will be on Wednesday, July 14 at 6:30 PM, MDT. Our featured speaker this month is Doug Coombs. Doug’s presentation will be Lightroom Catalog—Part II. In his May presentation, Doug described the basics of Adobe Lightroom’s catalog, including how to create a catalog, how to import images to a catalog, the relationship and location of the catalog and your images, useful settings, and backing up the catalog. 

In this second part, Doug will go cover the layout of the Library module in Lightroom, and will discuss some of the tools for organizing images, including using the Filter, Toolbar and Filmstrip. He will discuss and demonstrate using collections, keywords, and built-in metadata like EXIF to efficiently organize and search for images in the Lightroom Catalog. 

Club members will receive an email with the Zoom link for this presentation. Others who are interested in watching may contact Andy Butler at abutler@mac.com  for the link.
