igital photography has offered old-school film photographers more tools and capabilities than you can shake a stick at! You have some great digital cameras, powerful computers that are affordable, and some rockin' software like Photoshop CS2 that you can use to tweak, retouch, and even morph your photos. One rule remains true whether you shoot film or digital: Better photographs start with the photographer. True, software utilities and techniques help make a normal blah photo a little better, but images well exposed, composed, and focused make much better prints.
After you've taken some great photos, there's more fun to be had! Well, some folks have fun organizing and downloading images, converting the raw ones, and making further corrections and edits in Photoshop. Okay, it's an acquired taste — a bit more complex than driving a roll of film down to the corner drugstore for processing! But think of the control you now have over how your images turn out. That's where some real creativity with digital photography begins — in the "digital darkroom" — and that's what this book is all about. The chapters in this part help get you started working with the tools and established processes of the digital darkroom: Bridge, Camera Raw, Photoshop, and the workflows that give you consistently impressive results.
