What happens AFTER you’ve snapped the perfect picture?

I explain it all in the Editing Extension Pack. What a lot of people don't realize is that ALL professional photographers enhance their images in the digital darkroom. Also known as post processing, I'll walk you through the steps to turn those great images into perfection. Yes, editing can "fix" some images, but it's meant to elevate that fabulous shot to the most dazzling state.

In this editing extension, you will find a tutorial for my favorite free online editing program, a walk through of Lightroom from start to finish, and my entire workflow on Photoshop, including RAW files to JPG. It's packed with a lot of information!

The extension is quite hefty, and nearly as long as the stand alone Camera Academy, as step by step instructions are detailed in each program.

The Editing Extension is a $30 add-on package to the Camera Academy
