Unfortunately a lot of photographers struggle with it and never get to the professional level where they really need to be.
Fact #1. Buyers these days are all looking for ‘print ready’ images that they can drop straight into their layouts, and … Fact #2. Your previews need to look ‘perfect’ if you want online buyers to even consider them.
If you think you might be lagging behind a bit on this, I just came across a video-tutorial package created especially for photographers.
The tutorials were recorded by a professional portrait photographer and show you step-by-step all the essential digital darkroom skills he uses in his business.
“Photoshop For Photographers” is a fantastic resource that breaks it all down into bite-sized chunks to help you master the key photo processing tasks in no time at all.
So if you struggle with Photoshop, or you just wish you could do it all a bit better or a bit faster, check this out now…
More goodies: the guys at Just4Photographers have actually added some ‘extras’ to the package, making it even better value.
The one that impressed me was an amazing set of 942 Photoshop Actions … powerful little scripts you drag-and-drop into Photoshop so you can perform long and complicated tasks with a single click.
I’ve just been looking through the package and there’s some great stuff there … photo fixes and adjustments, presentation effects, amazing text effects plus hundreds of art-abstract effects.
If you didn’t see these the first time round, make sure you have another look…
