Behind Glass
Behind Glass

This is a shot I reworked from last week.
- Put through CS1 with additional saturation, some color correction (normal film curve).
- Power Retouche to Black and White (minor corrections)
- Then HP5 grain added
- One layer/level adjustment (pretty minor)
- Resized for web (bicubic smooth)
- Unsharp mask: Amount 100% / Radius 1.0 / Threshold 11
- Save for web as JPG (level 10)
This is basically the workflow for now - and unless you are dying for more - I promise not to mention it again.

One more digital discovery.  Happened by accident by last night I was viewing some of the old A75 shots in grayscale mode and I noticed they had more presence than most of the 20D shots.  I looked at them in color and realized they were really saturated compared to the 20D where I had saturation turned down.  I turned saturation up and I think the recent (today) 20D shots are greatly improved.  I had not been able to achieve the same effect with contrast or curve controls.

Press Room: Photoshop CS2 announced.

I haven't seen anything in the specs about changes to the web gallery generation which is what I've been looking for.  But it looks like a big improvement for RAW processing.
