Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video What image retouching does, part of Nikon D5100 Essential Training.
Post-production is a critical part of the photography process, and you'll…probably spend a lot of time adjusting your pictures using image-editing…software on your computer, but there is also a fair amount of image editing…that you can perform on your camera.…Now when you use the camera's built- in image-retouching options, the camera…alters your original image and saves out a new version.…If you're working with RAW files then no actual edits are made to your RAW file;…instead the file is tagged as having been edited.…If you use Nikon editing software on your computer then the edits will be made…to the RAW file when you open it.…
These features are handy if you absolutely need to get an edit made quickly, but…in general, I don't recommend that you use these features that much.…The editing capabilities in the image- editing software on your computer offers…much more control and will often yield much better quality results.…
