    Learning Photoshop and LR for photo-editing *PICS

    Sup OTAP I'm looking for advice on how I can improve my editing skills. I recently started using both programs for editing my photos. I'm just looking for some advice about color/tones and general editing techniques for photography.

    here is a random one I did of some guy on the Canon forums who took pics of his kids and said it looked too flat. People started doing some shitty PP of the original pic so I decided to join in and practice some more.

    just keep practicing.

    read up on new techniques, look at good photographers work and see what they did, get new presets actions (use found a torrent for craigs, boutwells and kubota's actions :bowdown: )

    However, I was able to grab that torrent using Azureus, for some reason I couldnt get it using BitTorrent. I do appreciate your PM though. :bowdown::bowdown:

    no

    just google Lightroom actions, 95%+ are free, though making your own is more fun and effective.

    also read the lightroom sticky for your's truely's LR preset
