    Need site for PP suggestions

    I've got perhaps six images from way back when that I'm trying to resurrect through, so far, unsuccessful PP.
    They seem to suffer from, aah...generally poor photography skills.
    Anyone able to suggest a site to visit for suggestions geared toward improving these pictures?

    Chauncey,

    Are you a novice at postprocessing? If you are, then I think I can help explain. Postprocessing is very complicated. It entails many different types of editing, and there are many different ways of accomplishing any one of them. It's just too big a topic for a single site. Good web pages about postprocessing tend to be far more specific. E.g., there are LOTS of web pages discussing various ways of sharpening, and the pros and cons of each. There most be hundreds, if not thousands, of sites talking about just how to do a specific edit in one specific software package, such as LR. I really can't think of a site that is useful for a question as broad as yours.

    If you are in fact a novice, my suggestion is that you pick up a beginner's book that will walk you through some of the basic edits in the particular software you want to use--something that will discuss why you would do certain edits as well as how to do them. For example, Scott Kelby has a book of that sort for Lightroom. I found it very useful when I first bought the software.

    I hope this helps.

    I am reasonably adept at CS6...I seem to be a failure at seeing the direction a particular photograph should be taken.
    Kinda want them to be more that what they are.

    Re: Need site for PP suggestions

    If you know your way around CS6 and want suggestions about what to do, rather than how to do it, there are plenty of pages where you can post pictures asking for suggestions. People do that on the postprocessing forum here. There is a critique forum at photo.net. I do this with the site of my local photo club. (If you add your location to your profile, perhaps someone can suggest a local group.)

    Hi, Chauncey.

    Scott Kelby also has video tutorials where at the end of a shoot he demonstrates how he edits the shots he has just take. Kelby Training videos are a subscription service (not expensive) and give editing and (shooting) approaches from a number of well known pros. Might be what you are looking for. Cheers.
