Post Process Image Editing — A Little Goes a Long Way

Let’s start out by saying that just because you image editing software has 1,001 effects does not mean that you must use them all with every photo. There are times for excess and there are times that you may use a plethora of filters, dissolves, and effects, but that does not mean every picture needs them. The best thing you can do is to use your image editor the least amount necessary to make the shot you took look its best. In some cases, this means less is more. Not every photo needs to have a vignette framing or blurred edges to make it better. If it does, it could be a good indication that your skill behind the camera is in need of honing.
