From RAW to JPEG
Post-processing is indispensable for transforming raw pixels into captivating, impactful photographs, enriching their storytelling and aesthetic allure. Tools like darktable (open-source) or Lightroom (commercial) facilitate adjustments in brightness, contrast, and color, which enhances visual appeal, corrects imperfections, and enables creative expression while optimizing photos for various outputs such as prints or social media. Post-processing isn't a dark art for pro artists or geeks; it's a vital requirement for every image, regardless of its subject or content.
