With Adobe’s Photographer plan you now have access to the full blooded Photoshop and its attendant tools Bridge and Camera RAW.  However, this software suite is very intimidating to new users.  So, if you want to start using Photoshop, let me help you climb that learning curve quickly.  By the end of the day, you will be confidently browsing, opening, editing and saving your work using the mother of all image editors.

On this introductory day, we will introduce you to Bridge (Photoshop’s image browser), CameraRAW (the RAW editor) and discover how Photoshop’s non-destructive layer system operates.  Join Adrian to discover some of the reasons why Photoshop is still used today by professional photographers for retouching their images.

I attended two of Adrian's workshops on Lightroom, both beginners and intermediate days. I was a total beginner and found the two days invaluable to learning how to catalogue my pictures as well as editing. After a few weeks however my Lightroom crashed and locked me out for some reason. In desperation I contacted Adrian to see if he could offer a solution? He contacted me back and using Team Viewer which I easily downloaded, and Facetime Adrian remotely helped me resolve my problem. this was a simple but absolutely an effective way to resolve issues with Lightroom. Thank you for getting me up and running so quickly. Jasmina Goodair - June, 2017

I too thought that my one day was hugely rewarding.  Thank you very much. I have been putting it into practice as quickly as possible.  Paolo - November, 2016

I wanted to drop you a line both to thank and to congratulate you for Saturdays session which I found invaluable.  Following on I have spent two days re-organising and updating my photo library which is now in very good shape I believe.  Further I doubt I will be using Photoshop much in the future since now I have a better grasp of Lightroom that is going to be my software of choice when editing/finding/storing pictures. Thank you very much and I look forward to seeing you next year for the second day [by then I hope I will be on top of all the things you communicated on Saturday. Furthermore if you wish to use me as a reference I am quite happy if you give my e mail to others I will happily give a great reference. Peter - November, 2016

I wanted to say what an excellent workshop you ran. Your knowledge, enthusiasm and patience came across so well and the two days were so enjoyable and informative. Thank you for helping me catchup on the bits I missed due to storm Angus and Southeastern Rail services… I am now fired up to progress with Lightroom and I will most likely take you up on your questions by email offer. You sound as though you really mean to continue helping out with any queries. Thank you! I will certainly keep an eye out for further courses you are running so hope to participate again before too long. It was a pleasure also to meet Clare. Good luck with driving back to Barnstaple! Best wishes also to all the group, hope we meet again too. Tamara - November, 2016

Thank you so much for Saturdays workshop, I really appreciated the time you spent making sure I was able to keep up ! I found the information clearly presented and the excellent literature will be essential for me to work through now I am back home. A mouse is now essential on my new computer. You asked for feedback on the venue, excellent, easy to access, with pleasant helpful staff and good loos.. Most enjoyable method of learning Lightroom, thank you once again, sure I will have a query or two in the future. Judy - November, 2016

A fantastic day, Well worth every penny. Thank you and hope to see you again soon Warren - November, 2016

Thanks again for yesterday, it was a really fantastic day as you covered everything I thought I needed to know and more! Thanks for presenting everything so wonderfully clearly and for the notes book.  I'm sure I'll be in touch and hope to meet you and the others again on another course. Heather - November, 2016

"Dear Adrian, I thought you ran two excellent workshops at the weekend. They were clear, well structured and with very helpful documentation. I was impressed by your ability to be responsive to the individual needs of participants while still covering the promised agenda.  I also admire your stamina - two full on days with hardly a break! I felt my needs and questions were very well met and I came away as a Lightroom enthusiast!  Finally, I could not have imagined that two days working on software could be so much fun. Thank you very much indeed. I hope your journey back home has not been too horrific." Janine - November, 2016

Adrian was very informative and helpful to his class and I am sure we all learned from his instruction. He was very patient and helpful with queries that we anyone had . Certainly I feel I understand Lightroom more now than I did on last Friday April, 2016
