For as techie as I am, I am absolutely bad at Photoshop. I have no idea how to make two heads of that program. I can use iPhoto, Aperture, and other ‘lite’ applications well enough, but I just haven’t had the time or energy to truly master Adobe’s masterpiece.
My pictures, therefore, in spite of having ‘potential’ always stay in their ‘raw’ form. Colors aren’t that vibrant, nor is sharpness particularly crisp. Those days could be over for me with a piece of software that Stefan, a friend of mine, recommended:
DXO – http://www.dxo.com/intl/photo
This software, mostly geared towards DSLRs, will correct lens anomalies, sensor anomalies, and optical anomalies. The pictures do look better. Much better. The changes can be drastic at times (when your lens distorts the shot). You can even export pictures into Flickr! Give it a shot, unless you’re that Photoshop wiz I envy.
