The day will involve training on ExpressDigital's Darkroom software.
Darkroom gives photographers workflow productivity, and provides instant access to value added add ons, such as borders, text and digital backgrounds. It´s the ideal profit enhancement tool for photographers who earn their money by selling prints, and the perfect software to use at events.
ExpressDigital offers a one day Darkroom Training Seminar designed to help photographers from all areas of the industry learn to grow and succeed in their digital photography businesses. The day long program covers the Digital Everyday workflow consisting of ExpressDigital Darkroom Professional Edition software, PhotoReflect.com internet storefronts, and Labtricity connectivity.
The following is a course outline for the Darkroom Professional Regional Training, or a sample one day training for customers on their site. During the training, we are always aware of the needs of the photographers in attendance, and strive to provide the answers for the challenges that they are facing. Because of this, there are variations in the actual training from this outline.
There are also 2 breaks figured into the time, which include a morning and afternoon break. Any questions are addressed during that time if it is practical.
