The era of digital photography has brought tremendous advantages to bird and wildlife photographers. The ability to take hundreds or thousands of photos in one day allows us to continually raise the bar and strive for excellence in the images that we create. Many aspiring wildlife photographers that I meet, however, are bogged down by digital issues of file management and having an efficient workflow. It is common for photographers to waste a significant amount of time at the computer and as a result, many good images that could become great images remain untouched and un-shared on hard drives. These images simply never live up to their potential. This E-book is designed to share the strategies and techniques that I have developed over the years to improve and simplify Post Processing. In my own processing I use primarily two software platforms (Breezebrowser and Adobe Photoshop). As such, this book is aimed primarily at photographers hoping to learn to use Adobe Photoshop. However, many of the skills and techniques in this book could also be transferable to other software platforms. The chapters of this book are organized in a logical way to work through the following steps: - Creating a logical and efficient file management system - Culling images effectively and selecting your best work - Converting RAW files - Processing images in Adobe Photoshop (many skills transferable to Adobe Lightroom) This guide is for you if you want to: - Spend less time at the computer - Learn to use Adobe Photoshop - Streamline your processing workflow - Take your best images and take them to a whole new level - Display your images to family and friends
