tips and tricks while post processing...
This section is full with some tips mostly discovered through experience. I am open to suggestions, your name will also tag the tip, so e-mail them!
- Photoshop: The ultimate post processing program in my humble opinion. A lot of of variations, many abilities, sometimes you get lost in creativity. Can be difficult to learn.
- Lightroom: The ultimate RAW developing program (it is included in some ugly way in Photoshop, but it is easier stand alone). You can apply most of color and light corrections here. Selective color saturation and hue are only two of them. Avoid exaggerations however attractive because they increase digital noise.
- RAW developing offers more options than a compressed JPG file. This includes up to 2 stops of exposure correction, fill light, color manipulation. Keep corrections to low levels, do not exaggerate as unwanted noise may appear!
- Organize your photos by theme, tags or date. Use of folder trees will do for any program you use. This way you will always be able to find what you are looking for in your archive.
