Post-processing is an important skill to have as a photographer if you really want to get the best out of your photos. Minor adjustments can give a big lift to your otherwise dull photographs but if not done correctly, it can ruin a shot too. Knowing how a post-processing tool can be used effectively is critical.

While there are many photo-editing software out there, the basic idea behind any post-processing step remains the same across all of them. That said, Lightroom and Photoshop by Adobe are two of the most popular ones right now.

To help you improve your post-processing, we have put together a list of five free guides related to the subject, including a few from Photzy. Do check them out!

color-vs-bnw-20-12Some photos work better in black and white than others. Choosing whether a photograph should be in color or black and white can be a tricky situation for many. This guide will help you decide when color is important in a photograph and when a B&W conversion might be a good idea.

improve-comp-20-12Composition should essentially be determined before you click the shutter but oftentimes upon reviewing our photographs later, we realize that the composition could have been better. Post processing offers you ways to improve a composition by way of cropping or removing/ cloning out unwanted elements. This ebook shows you how with an example.

create-presets-20-12Presets are a really quick way to change how your photographs look. Using just one click to apply a preset, a photo takes on a completely different appearance. While there are a plenty of presets available online, you can easily create yours and use them. Do check out this video to learn more!

lr-guide-20-12Victoria Brampton, of The Lightroom Queen, has put together a great guide for those looking to get started with Lightroom 5/6/CC. Right from installing and importing photos in LR to explaining the workspace and basic editing techniques, the guide covers everything in great detail.

rockynook-11-1In this free guide by Rocky Nook, acclaimed photographer Scott Kelby reveals some cool Lightroom and Photoshop tricks, ranging from handy keyboard shortcuts to quick fixes for certain tricky situations. As the caption says, it will “help you do the things you want to do, right now”. Check it out!
