In Photoshop CS6 for Photographers, author, photographer, and teacher Chris Orwig explores Photoshop from the perspective of the photographer.
The course details the features and techniques behind enhancing and retouching photos, preparing them for print and online publishing, and much more. Chris demonstrates how to make basic edits in Camera Raw, develop and save color profiles, work with layers and selections, tone and sharpen, and retouch images while retaining their natural character.
Chris also shares some creative tips and project ideas, such as converting a photo to black-and-white and enhancing a portrait with hand-painted masks. The course also covers workflow details, such as organizing images in Bridge and Mini Bridge, optimizing Photoshop preferences, and calibrating your monitor.
Here, I want to share with you a really great application which allows you to add frames or borders or edges to your photographs, and the application is called PhotoFrame. Now this application, it does cost money, yet you can always download this 30-day trial. So if this chapter has increased your interest in how you can add edges or border effects to your photographs, you may want to try this out. It is a ton of fun. It's ononesoftware.com/ products/suite/photoframe.
And again, feel free to download that trial and just give this one a test run. And mostly what it can help you do is just to think creatively about how you can add those edges or borders and how you can do that in a way that it doesn't detract from your photographs, but rather that it complements or maybe even enhances them.
