How To: Make Your Digital Photos Infinitely Better with 5 Post-Production Tips

created at: 01/25/2011

Last week, I had the amazing opportunity to attend the Altitude Design Summit in Salt Lake City, and was fortunate to attend a workshop by Alma and Mike of Ollibird. They’re amazing artists who are superwhizzes with digital tools, and who’ve dedicated themselves to teaching others how to tackle creative software like Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.

I learned a ton from their workshop, and even purchased their how-to books, which, for me, beat anything I’ve seen from big publishing companies.

Recently, they created this super-helpful overview of five simple tips to make your I-tried-but-couldn’t-really-pull-it-off photos something worth postingfor Etsy. And, friends? It’s really good stuff.

While knowing how to set up and take a great picture is key, knowing how to fix and enhance that image in Photoshop will take your image to the next level (and, speaking from personal experience, it can make up for the skills you may lack behind the camera). 

Today, I’d like to offer you a few tips I’ve learned along the way for some Photoshop basics that will make a big impact on your product photos.
