The Digital Darkroom: The Definitive Guide to Photo Editing

The Digital Darkroom: The Definitive Guide to Photo Editing by James Abbott

Editing is a vital part of the image-making process. Just as darkroom techniques were important skills to learn in the days of film, a clear understanding of post-processing is now key to getting the most out of your digital pictures. From making full use of the information stored in RAW files, to mastering the subtle tweaks that transform good shots into works of art, this book provides the reader with every tool, trick and technique in the editing arsenal.

Easy to follow, accessible for readers of all levels of knowledge, and laid out in a format that lets you develop your skills through clear and inspiring tutorials, The Digital Darkroom is the definitive guide to post-processing for users of Adobe Photoshop and Affinity Photo.
