Chapter 2

Raising your IQ

How to improve your image quality

 

We naturally all want our photographs to look their very best when they are printed on the page. In this chapter we wanted to start by looking at some of the ways you can help guarantee getting the best digital results from your camera. As you will read later, we carried out a few tests to show how different ways of shooting and the choice of lens can affect sharpness. More importantly, we wanted to show some of the key benefits of using Camera Raw to carry out the initial image processing. You'll also find tips in this chapter on ways to curb noise and add midtone contrast.
