Post Processing - Drew-Smith

Post Processing Course

My ‘Post Processing’ course will show you how to enhance your images using Photoshop, Adobe Camera Raw (ACR), Lightroom and other software applications.


This post processing course isn’t about ‘saving’ bad pictures, rather it’s about taking a good picture and making it look even better.


It will show you how to develop a ‘work-flow’ and how to batch process multiple similar images to retain consistency in the most efficient way. This course also explores the unsurpassed flexibility in processing ‘camera raw’ images.
