List of My Post-Processing Postings v2

Here is an updated list of my sort-of tutorial postings for those who might be keeping track of them.

My goal with these is to try and show folks who are uncomfortable with post-processing and think it is too difficult that it's not really rocket science and that some fairly easy procedures can make some dramatic improvements in one's digital photos. Almost every image I’ve ever seen come out of a camera, digital or film, could be improved in some way with post-processing.

Use screen stacking to recover seriously underexposed digital images that were shot as multiple shot brackets or bursts.
