Taking photographs is more than just "getting it right in the camera." No matter how "right" the image looks coming out of the camera you may find you haven't finished with it yet. That's where good photo editing software comes in. When working with editing software you should have a straightforward, streamlined post-processing workflow. This can save both time and headaches. The exact workflow process will vary from photographer to photographer, and sometimes even from image to image, yet there is a sequence that, if followed, will not only streamline your editing process, but also help avoid losing valuable pixel data (even if you’re shooting with jpegs).
