Help With Photoshop?

Tue Nov 02, 2010 8:22 am

Hi all...

I seem to have lost one of the forum threads... I saved it. marked it and put it in my favorites box, now its gone...

I was saving it for when I bought photoshop and now that I have and loaded it onto my PC, I cant find the threads I saved... I cant remember what it was Headed as, but I know the that thread that they were explaining (photo for photo) how to clean up and enhance the airliner, I think (if my memorie serves me) it was KLM in the photo.... there was also one thread that nicely explained (my beloved) twilight shots and early evening shots and the photoshop clever tips...

can anyone help me find that thread? and or, can anyone give me the quickest crash course on photoshop... just the basic's for now, (the manual is so thick and it has applied itself to so many different types of photography)...

thanks guys

Angie

That's one of them. Jid has another workflow (if you search for posts from him, you'll find it).

Im very excited about photoshop... I read the forum photographers Vs Editors... and that's what made me decide to go out and buy photoshop,.. and it does make sense...

Photoshop is a piece of computer software. If you don't get a good photo in the first place, then Photoshop can't magically improve it either. Photoshop can do many wonderful things - but making good photos isn't among its qualities.  

Take it from this somewhat weathered person who has used Photoshop now for some 10 years (only more recently in a photographic discipline however).

I don't know Chris. Harking back to the Photog/Editor thread, I could show you a few bad images of mine that now look good and have even made the grade here.

Photoshop can't perform miracles and certainly can't make a blurry/OOF shot good, but I think it can salvage very mediocre images shot in reasonable light. There usually has to be a good number of things wrong with a photograph in order for Photoshop not to be able to tart it up.

When doing shots in tricky light (e.g. sunset/dusk) I always shoot in RAW, which is much more forgiving if you get things slightly out.
