Photographer Jamie Windsor made this helpful 13-minute video in which he shares 6 things you should at least consider doing when editing your photos in Lightroom and Photoshop.
“You don’t need to do all of these every time, but they are definitely things you should think about,” Windsor says.
Here’s a rundown of the 6 points:
1. Consider cropping your image.
2. Use white balance to make your shot “fee” right.
3. Selectively lighten and darken (AKA dodge and burn).
4. Edit in 16 bit.
5. Level and straighten your image.
6. Take a break.
Watch the video above to hear Windsor elaborate on each point and demonstrate techniques for doing them in software.
