      I have read yours posts with great interest... far from being an expert, I have two observations to make if I may!

      Art and photography is subjective!
      Follow the rules!
      Don't follow the rules!
      If you slightly like the work you do, someone else will love it!

      If you want to improve your work, learn to follow the rules, then break them! Editing is great for that... feedback/evaluation, light and contrast (God forbid, colours)

      If this makes sense, great!
      If this doesn't make sense, take you camera and start!!!! close-up, landscape, b&w, crop, add silly colours...

      My rule? Seek a narrative! Your pictures tell you a story, then you have done well!
      My tip! Name your photos... I see my photos taking a life that I like, I frame and name them!

    I would have to say that I am not obsessed with over editing.
    I do feel that a modest level of editing is required to achieve the desired results. To many people get over happy with editing and take things to far and often seem unreal.

    I wouldn't consider myself a freak in photo editing, others might call me that, however. I do edit all of the photographs I take to simply sharpen or adjust lighting, cropping, etc. Sometimes, well quite a bit actually, I like to play around with certain photos, add layers, filters, frames, etc. It's fun to see what you can create from an image. I probably haven't reached the freak stage because I'm not schooled enough in how to truly "freak" photos.

    Just did my first hub on the 10 programs I use most to edit and view photos.

      A modest amount of image processing can enhance a great photo but can not make a poor image good.

    I don't know how to edit photos, except for cropping them. Oh, and I made my profile photo a kaleidoscope because I found this website and I was bored. lol

    I enjoy editing my photos I use on hubs or blogs. Making a photo "unique" is fun. I mostly use PowerPoint by Microsoft. There is so much you can do with their program. Especially if you want to take a few photos and mesh them together and then add graphics and text to them. After "grouping" pics and graphics and text, I can save as both picture and presentation slide.
    The advantage I like with PowerPoint is that I also save the PPT presentation and can easily go back to edit.

          And PowerPoint is not that hard to use. What I like the most is I have the one picture after editing and in ppt I can go back to it and make adjustments easily.

    I am definitely a photo editing freak. I use photoshop on every image and have for the past 14 years. I used to lecture on this very subject to degree students. I am now a full time IT geek but was a photographer for 12 years before this so if you have any questions for me fire away. I am confident I can answer any question you have on this subject. smile

    p.s. My personal belief is first try to get the perfect picture. Then enhance the image with editing and if done correctly...you won't even know it has been manipulated.

      I totally agree on taking the perfect picture first. It's crazy how much photo editing can be avoided by using plain old - good composition- like filling the frame and watching out for background clutter smile

    Hi there

    Do look at the link through my website http://www.rembrandz.com under "My Drawing" on top of the page or http://www.toonpool.com/cartoons/Cleane … ood_77376.
    I love doing to this type of photo editing. There is one more picture there on my gallery called "Holiday Resort" where I use photo editing. I did both for my own interest but turned into special interests for my clients. Regards
