If you’re reading this, then you’re most likely an amateur photographer who is serious about taking the steps to educate yourself on photo editing. Maybe you’re making the gradual move to becoming a pro, or maybe you simply want to be able to take your photos from good to great. In this tutorial, I’ll show you a few simple ways to retouch images, remove objects, and repair imperfections. These methods will work on portraits of faces just as well as they will on interiors or landscapes. I’m using Photoshop CS6, but the newer CC and even some older versions will have many of the same features and functions.
It is exciting when creatives decide to take their hobby of photography and see if they can make it into a career. It is interesting though, how beginners and even those who have been in the industry for a while, may not realize how important marketing is.
In part one of this series, we discussed various ways to tweak your images in Lightroom, to help make them appear sharper. I warned against over-sharpening, mentioned the importance of shooting RAW files instead of JPEGs, and what causes unsharp images.
In today’s digital photography world, image sharpness is very important. Anyone with historical photo knowledge, or anyone that grew up shooting film knows that sharpness isn’t nearly as important as composition, subject matter, exposure, and a number of other factors that make a great photograph. This doesn’t change the fact that there are pixel peepers out there, and people expect today’s images to be tack sharp. This guide will help you add the appearance of additional sharpness to your images, without going too far and producing an image that looks obviously over sharpened.
