Re: Nostalgia number II: Re-processed photos from 2004-2009

Fantastic photos as usual, Reto!

Thank you very much, Cathy!

From a learning perspective, I'm interested to see how you reprocessed your photos - like what you decided to do to improve the originals. Possible for you to share one before and after?

My main software is Photoshop/Lightroom. Depending on the file I use either DxO PureRAW (to get rid of noise, get better conversion of the RAW and better optical correction) or the new SuperRes function of Photoshop (for example to get a larger file from 300D or other small RAWs). Additionally I occasionally use DeNoise AI and Sharpen AI from Topaz.

Obviously you need good files to start with. The better the original file the more you can get out of it. Trying to turn s**t into chocolate won't work

The following is a 300D example first processed with Photoshop SuperRes and further adjusted in Lightroom:

Old version

Enlarged and improved version.

The next one from a 500D was improved by using DxO PureRAW to convert the RAW plus some more adjustments in Lightroom:

The old version was not bad...

... but the new one is better

Thank you!


Hope this helps.

All the best,
