So to summarize the PDF.. Adjust WB, HSL, crop and sharpen.. you don't even need PS for that, LR will do just fine.

Definitely an out-dated workflow, but it's got solid fundamentals.. If works for you, go for it...! Cute kid, too.

Hey Andy, purely as an example...What do you do when shooting a group of people? If you're anything like me, trying to control micro-expressions is akin to herding cats...can't be done.
What I do is to take a series of images in AI Servo, choose the best image to use as a recipient and clone-in micro-expressions from the other images into that recipient. This way there is nobody blinking or sticking out their tongue or any of the other subject screw-ups.

All I'm suggesting is that Photoshop is capable of so much more than what your PDF indicated, at least to me but, it does give the neophyte out there a great starting point.


The things you do for yourself die with you, the things you do for others live forever.
A man's worth should be judged, not when he basks in the sun, but how he faces the storm.

How does AI-Servo help with this? Surely there are no moving targets?

Why not just use One shot hi speed?

Whoa........good to see this still generates interest after 7 years!! Maybe too limiting for some but I think it can still help others with the starting point for post-processing. Believe it or not, I still use this basic procedure with most portrait pics. Sorry that the original pics have disappeared........cha​nged servers and forgot that I had all these links at this site. Will try and rectify!

I applaud this tutorial and the efforts of many to keep the photos and links available. I don't understand why some criticize the demonstration as out of date or lacking in relevance. White balance, sharpening, highlights and shadow adjustments -- aren't these basic post-processing tools we can all use to improve the final result?

Hmm, I don't know that anyone is criticizing the post-processing techniques...even though the capabilities of apps like Lightroom have soared since this thread, over the past 8 years. The great majority of responders here have really appreciated this thread, read all the comments!!
