a more controlled way of posting a 100% crop -

select the marquee tool - then in the options palette select Style: Fixed Size - tap in 200x200px

then click with the marquee tool anywhere in your image, bingo - 1 x 200x200px box @ 100%!! (you can drag this around the screen as with a normal marquee)

Image - Crop.. job done! :)

Thank goodness someone has shown me a better way to do this than in my tutorial.

Much appreciated!

Tutorial: Reducing the Effect of Atmospheric Haze in Landscape Images
After finding that a large number of my vacations images had a substantial amount of atmospheric haze that was ruining their quality due to lack of contrast, detail, and color. I developed a methodology in Photoshop CS3 along with ACR 4.4.1 that was able to improve the problem for most of the images that I have tried it on so far, but there is a limit to how far you can go towards getting something from nothing. The tutorial describing the procedure can be found near the end of the thread in the following link:

http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=532742

The good news is that the contrast and color of the hazy background can be significantly improved. The obvious downside is that you pay for it with increased noise in the affected areas. I have found the trade-off to be worthwhile. The process is not a recipe that can be followed by rote because it requires you to make subjective judgments about the way that you want the image to look.

I thought that it was, but maybe CDS is working on it. Right now, I do not see any links from the sticky threads.

EDIT: I found the link from a sticky. First go to the sticky titled,

IMAGE NOT FOUND IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!

-= FAQ & IMPORTANT LINKS =- (Read Me First)
Next, near the top of the list and find the topic:
-= Post Processing Tutorials List =-
and finally, scroll down to near the bottom at Post #36 for a link to the tutorial on reducing the effect of atmospheric haze.

See how easy that was!

I'm really trying to get into editing but I feel overwhelmed as to where to start. When fixing a photo, would you say that following the order on the first page of this thread to be the best work flow? I would love to see a "Step 1... Step 2..." sort of tutorial. Thanks!

Steps 1 to 3, except I don't crop the original image if I've done a lot of work on it. And my first step is to add to the File > Info exif data.
Instead I'll drag some Guides in, save the image, then crop, resize, & sharpen.

done a lot of work on it.

Have you used Adjustment Layers yet? They have a mask built in, & are one of the most useful tools in PS.
Some basic links are in A question about sky and also be sure to look at post #9 of the Airport runway shoot link in my post.

Aaron, one of the most useful cookbooks for getting into post processing is "Scott Kelby's 7-Point System for Adobe Photoshop CS3". Even though the title says CS3, it works equally well for later revisions. You can learn the additional advanced features of later versions of Photoshop once you get your feet wet. The book may not be in print, but maybe there is a later version or something else equivalent. Google NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals) which is mostly serious amateurs, but also professional photographers, graphics artists and others in the publication business.

The book consists of about 21 step by step lessons with each getting a bit more complex. There are downloadable files that go along with the book. Scott Kelby has a teaching method that I found sometimes maddening because he gives steps to follow sometimes without fully explaining what is going on and without elaborating on the use of various tools. However, after a while, I found that this strange teaching method helps to build somewhat of an intuitive feel for the tools. For those like me who want to know the nuts and bolts, there are ample resources to fill in the gaps.

The thing that the book does best is give the student a feel for the way that Photoshop works and teaches a methodical approach as opposed to a shotgun approach of randomly using tools without really fully appreciating their purpose or potential.

By the time that you get to the end of the book (about three days for me, but then I am retired and had the time to spare), you will have a good acquaintance with Photoshop and the ability to use various features with confidence.

One caveat is that Scott Kelby strikes me as more of a graphics artist than a photographer so some of his "neat tricks"are not something that I would recommend. I'm specifically thinking about his water reflections which are technically inaccurate and do not produce a real world looking image for anybody who knows beans about reflections. That little nit aside, I very highly recommend the book as a way to get very rapidly jump started.

You might also want to consider joining NAPP for their excellent magazine, Photoshop User, as well as their books, seminars, online information, and discounts on software.

Beyond that, I would be very happy to offer a list of other more in-depth books for anyone who gets bitten very hard by the photography bug and becomes very serious about post processing of raw images. BTW, don't think of post processing as a way to "fix" images or you are likely to become disenchanted with the whole thing. Instead, think of post processing as a way to bring out the best in an image or a way to enable you to apply your artistic creativity if that is your inclination (not to be confused with heavy handed use of Photoshop effects). Finally, more important than anything else is that there is NO SUBSTITUTE for getting things right in the camera.
