Hi all, my objective is to learn the workflow how normally you guys do after downloading your images from the camera? :think:

Hope you don't mind to share a bit :embrass:

Here is my steps:
1. Download to a new folder with shooting date as folder name
2. Use PhotoShop CS to browse
3. Check Level/histogram of selected keeper (satisfied shots)
4. Adjust Level accordingly (usually pull the most right triangle toward left, and just learn that, I can play around with the middle triangle too :D )
5. Do a 3:2 crop
6. Save a copy under "Post Processing" sub folder
7. resize to 770x513
8. increase canvas size to 30 pixels height and width for frame design
9. do frame drop shadow
10. add copyright text
11. flatten layers
12. save a copy under "web" sub folder
13. Copy the entire photo folders to CD for keep
14. publish to my online gallery
15. Invite you guys to visit and hope to get valuable comments :sweat:

That's all what I do always... how about you guys heh :cool:
