Everyone has taken photos which, for one reason or another, have not turned out as hoped. With this easy-to-use introduction to the key tools and techniques of photo editing. Michael Freeman shows you how to lift your work from good to great, enhancing your images using the powerful capabilities of today’s photo-editing software.

You’ll learn how to carry out all kinds of edits, from fixing lens distortion and correcting color to touching up a portrait or adding drama to a cloud sky.
