OT: Processing Photos for Web Display

Seeing that many post photos up on this site, I thought I'd throw a few of my tricks out there that can help fellow E46fanatics & their digital pics. Also, being a photographer, I've tried just about every method & here are the ones I think work best:

(Assuming you're using Photoshop)

Dark photos may contain a good picture Try using the LEVELS command (Image/Adjust/Levels). The window will show a histogram with three triangle sliders. Slide the left triangle to the right, where the first "mountain" of the histogram begins. Do the same with the right triangle, by sliding it to the left. Sliding the center triangle to the left will make your photo brighter, to the right will make your photo darker. I wouldn't move this center triangle too much though - just concentrate on the outer two.

Photoshop Actions can save a ton of time For some time now I've been using actions created by Fred Miranda. I've owned programs that cost hundreds of dollars and they show no noticeable improvement over what Fred's actions can do. And his are priced around $10. While you can purchase actions specifically for your camera model (mine is a D60), you can also check out his Generic ones)Fred Miranda Essential Darkroom Actions

I am in no way associated with Fred's site, just thought I'd pass along a bit of info that many photographers use. Go check his site out - some of the stuff he has is pretty amazing for under $15. The Shadow Recovery action is quite simply, amazing!
