    usually levels a bit like contrast n saturation. at most play wif white balance n saturation to create "old" effect if d pic needs that effect...

    Histogram, exposures, sharpness, color tone, white balance etc. There are a lot of things to edit. See what your photo editor can do and try out the features.

    Do you mean editing within camera or using software?

    For me, I usually adjust Levels, Saturation, Contrast, Curves levels using Adobe Photoshop.

    The most common thing I do with my images is give them a slight contrast boost with curves, and sometimes slight added saturation, though this is not likely.

    My regular workflow basically revolves around this sequential process:

    1) Look through all images, deleting those that are clearly not keepers
    2) Colour correction and noise reduction
    3) Slight contrast boost - check that after contrast boost, none of the important detail gets blown out through overexposure, or brought down through underexposure.

    a lot of things if it was badly taken


    a lot less things if it was well taken

    best part is, usually after doing a lot of things i delete the photo anyways

    moral of story - learn how to maximise in cam

    Cool Re: Editing photos

    In the old days they do it in a darkroom,
    now u can do it on a computer!!

    just treat it like a computer game & keep experimenting & have fun !!

    Photoshop has unlimited potentials. there are so many effects u can achieve. difficult to list all of them here.

    haha i love that you call it a computer game. hahah.

    i adjust curves mainly. some dodge and burn too. then depending on the feel of the photo, i add other embellishments like brushes and textures.

    yes, i'm spoonfeeding you but you can try this website: http://photoshoptutorials.ws/
    try some tutorials then you'll learn alot more about the different tools in photoshop and can apply it in future to your other photos.
