Editing advice needed!
How many of us worry constantly not of our composition, subject matter, or ideas. but rather, we worry about "did I apply too much color saturation? Not enough saturation? or the dreaded "Image over filtered" rejection? poor lighting set up, etc... Does anyone out there have any tips for us novice types on a proper way to remove blemishes, logos, unwanted elements in a photo, etc that will not get us rejected? I mainly us "auto" buttons to hopefully fall within the contrast and levels criteria for acceptance, are there any other ways? I see several images that have been "photoshop enriched" and still get uploaded with wierd color replacement, images with pure plastic looking skin on models, etc...I am really hoping to increase my workflow and of course increase my acceptance rate. I think many of us newbies would benefit greatly from some basic tips and guides from our DT Legends and superstars! Please let me hear from you! Thanks in advance to all who respond.
