Frequent readers of my blog have seen my previous posts about the newest Scott Kelby book, The 7-Point System for Adobe Photoshop CS3. Well, I have decided to post a before and after image that was processed using the system. Normally I wouldn’t be posting an unprocessed image but I wanted to show how far you can take an image by using the system from his book. I don’t want to give away any processing secrets, but that’s only because there are none, secrets, that is. This isn’t a book about secret techniques, rather a recipe for making images look better using tried and true techniques in a logical order. I have been applying the same techniques to my images for sometime now but not necessarily doing everything I should, every time. The one thing I noticed when using the book isn’t how I can improve my photoshop skills but how I can improve the way I look at my prints to determine what I should be doing to them in post-process. I don’t think this was necessarily the original intent of the book but I find it to be a great and unexpected benefit. To get your copy of The 7-Point ust follow this link.
