Image Edits and Enhancements in Lightroom 4

Adobe’s new Lightroom 4 offers new options for editing and output that make this a must-have upgrade for Lightroom users. In this free webinar sponsored by X-Rite, Joe Brady will explore both basic and advanced image editing techniques. During this session, he’ll focus on the new editing capabilities offered in this upgrade – in future sessions, Joe will explore the new modules and Lightroom file organization.


One of the new additions to Lightroom 4 is its ability to soft-proof. Now users can choose their printer profile and see what effects it will have on the printed image. This makes monitor profiling and accurate printer profiles an important part of Lightroom 4’s workflow.

There’s a lot to cover in an hour and limited space, so webinar attendees are encouraged to register now.

Here are some topics photographer Joe Brady will cover:
  • Why monitor color is important for Lightroom 4
  • Image edits and batch processing including:
    – Global image edits
    – Local color and light adjustments with Lightroom 4’s new options
    – Retouching both skin and landscape blemishes
    – Composition
    – Image sharpening, noise reduction and lens profiles
    – Preparing files for lab printing
