Why no post-processing?
Nov 4, 2012

Okkie68's thread about a first post-processing experience reminded me that I've wondered why so many of the images I've seen on this forum are straight out of the camera. SOOC is great if the purpose of the post is to demonstrate what the camera can do all by itself. But it has been my experience that even a little tweaking in an editing program can improve most digital images.

Maybe it's me and how I handle the cameras, but my Lumix FZs seem to specialize in the green cast visible in Okkie68's unedited image. This is just one example of the sorts of things that are easy to fix. And it's fun! When my power was out all this week, one of the things I missed most was "playing with pictures."

I think everyone should be PPing (so to speak).
