I have been into digital photography for about 7 months, but I barely do much photo editing besides a) contrast b) black/white/sepia conversion c) minor cropping
My focus now will be to learn about editing photos to make them more pleasing. This is presume, will be to learn how to:
a) Edit white balance
b) Edit skin flaws like pimples/stray hair etc
c) Increase tonal range of the photo
Well, I guess most of the stuff I wanna achieve is simple to most of you guys but to a lazy person like me....
Considering what I want to achieve, which software should I invest my $$ and time in?
