Looking for some help,re PP,I mainly use CS5 sometimes DPP.
I am not at good at PP. I usually open up and adjust temp,then may be recovery slider,then clarity
and vibrance adjust.
The into layers-Levels seems to make quite a bit of difference for a small movement of slider.then may be
I the flattern image and adjust in un mask.Then crop .
See first image in this link,for a basic attempt (the image was not the best,but its a hard to capture hawk)
There is a noise reduction feature in CS 5 but nor sure how to set it,I got some information on settings for
un mask-and its seems good (from a bird tut forum)
I have 'neat image' it does help,but it really reduces the size of file,and changes colour very slightly)
Starting to learn and use masks-which I am told really helps.
Any links to tuts on masking or reducing noise levels,would be most helpful.
