Digital Workflow: 101 (What do you want to learn?)
Posted by Dave in News & Announcements on Sep 5, 2012 comments and reactions

I'm planning two series of short articles for this blog: one will cover digital workflow and post-production, the other, shooting (e.g. composition, depth-of-field, and so on). These aren't going to be complex, or exhaustive – anything that warrants a more detailed discussion will become a tutorial – but I do want them to be interesting, informative and useful.

I'll write another post about the Shooting: 101 series soon, but it's the Digital Workflow series I want to talk about here as I'd like your help to pick the topics. Here's an initial list: some are my own ideas, while others were suggested on Facebook earlier today.

  • Sharpening for the web.
  • Setting up a Photoshop workspace.
  • Configuring Camera Raw.
  • Using 'Blend If'.
  • 16 bit versus 8 bit editing.
  • Understanding the Apply Image command.
  • Using the Info Palette effectively.
  • Noise reduction techniques.
  • How to create and use Actions and Droplets in Photoshop.
  • Dodging and Burning.
