Editing your pictures for the web and quick prints should be an easy fast process. Here are the steps that I usually follow.
1. Crop (I do this first to help me know what I’m working with).
2. Brighten add Contrast (this can fix a lot of color problems).
3. Make color Adjustments (does the picture need more saturation, more warmth?)
4. Draw the eye to the most important part of the picture (use lasson to lighten area of interest, a simple vignette can focus the attention to the area of interest).
Following a recipe like this, just a few simple steps, should only take a few minutes and make a huge difference with your photos.
