A Night with the Editors! Wed 7 October 2022

EDITING YOUR DIGITAL PHOTOS after you’ve taken them (post-production) is something that we all probably do whether using your camera’s native software or a specific editing software program. The extent to which you edit your images depends on the starting file format (JPEG or RAW), the software you use and your familiarity with it, and according to the aims of your creative vision for the resulting image.

We have discovered that Hedon Viewfinders members use a variety of image editing and image manipulation programs. What we thought would be a useful exercise, particularly for those considering changing or upgrading their software, is to hold an editing night. This is where members can bring along their laptops (if you have one) and we’ll each work on editing some common images as an exercise, and give an overview of some of the programs that are available.

So whether you use your camera’s own software, or programs like the monthly rented Photoshop, Lightroom, or one-off purchases like Affinity, Luminar, PhotoLab, inPixio, etc, etc, we’ll try to look at each and give some idea about their costs, ease of use, ease of learning and results.

Whether you are bringing your laptop or not, below is a rather plain image that you might want to download and use as a sample image to practice on. Bring along your edited image on your laptop or a memory stick/flash drive and we can have a look.
