Thread: Another chance at a free Lightroom Class

    Another chance at a free Lightroom Class

    Kim Klassen's current Lightroom class is filled (with 800+ students!) so she is offering it again in August. Click here to get info.

    I had to laugh at one of the bits of advice she gives to those starting the current session....and the 2nd line is always true!


    "I am in no way responsible for your LR Catalog/Folder and File or Operating system issues.
    Please do not start moving folders and files if you are not familiar with this process."

    Thanks for this Maureen! I've just signed up for the August session and I'm looking forward to downloading the trial of Lightroom nearer the time with a view to purchasing it thereafter

    Thanks, Maureen! I've signed up and hopefully this will make me decide if I want to start over with reimporting all my photos or not. :O)

    I just downloaded the first lesson - I've had LR3 for a long time and still don't understand catalogs!! It's fun for using presets, though!

    Julie, as many teachers have said, it's like the card catalog in an old library or the digital info today. The card is not the book but it has the information about the book and where it is. As in a library, if the book is moved and put in another/wrong section, the card or digital info will no longer be correct. At least in LR, you can say Find It and if you know where your (book) image is, LR can reconnect.

    Kim talks fast in this class but the pdfs spell it all out as do the videos. It's a very good base for understanding the structure of LR.

    Did anyone get the Aug date for this? I signed up but haven't heard anything since then. Did I miss it?

    Gosh Kelly, I've no idea! I also signed up for it but don't recall anything unless I missed it to because I have so much stuff flooding my inbox at the moment! I so wish there were more hours in the day!

    I signed up for this one again, just to go over some things. I got the email on August 3 and this is the subject line {Lightroom-Begin} Important LR Begin Access Info and comes from Kim Klassen <kim@kimklassen.com>. I didn't go into the site last week as I ...ugh ...cannot get the email to work on that laptop.

    Check your spam folders? The link to Class Info is here. When the class starts/started, new info is posted on Tuesdays and Fridays.

    I had 12 in my head, Merr. I hope that was my date, too. Fingers crossed for an email tomorrow as I have nothing from the 3rd. :O/
    ~Kelly




  17. Kelly, I didn't get anything on the 3rd. My confirmation email came on July 19th. Nothing since then. I'll be looking for my email tomorrow. In fact, the email said the email with class details will come on the evening of the 11th.

    Awesome! I signed up on the 1st and I'm pretty sure I got my confirmation then. Thanks for letting me know. I'll try not to hover over the computer all day and wait until "evening." Thanks, Merr. :O)
