    Curves, levels and unsharp mask are probably the three most important things you can use for dslr adjustments.

    Furiofire, that's not a 'digital darkroom' technique, that's just a photoshop effect. The title is referring to what kind of post processing technique do you like to do to photographs.

    The term "Digital Darkroom Technique" is a very broad one. A digital darkroom is simply the equipment and software used to play with and print pictures from your computer. A digital darkroom typically includes a monitor, printer, scanner, digital camera and computer.

    No where in the origianal post is mention of digital darkroom post processing.

    Photoshop is the industry standard for proffesionals and is the key ingredient in my "digital darkroom"

    Effects/techniques, as least for me, is the same thing as post processing in the digital sense. I simply said that the author of the theard was referring to post processing and not stating it directly.

    I understand what makes up a 'digital darkroom' and just like you said, the key ingredient is photoshop. Without it I don't see how you could achieve a 'technique' for your photo on your monitor unless it's a tablet or you just like seeing what the photo looks like when you dequas(?) or you have a shitty scanner with lots of dust that gives the image an interesting pattern to it.

    I actually just bought this the other day, for next to nothing on Amazon. Well, as far as Photoshop related books go. $21.
