    Default How much time do you spend editing your photos?

    I am a fan of trying to use the pics i choose in the straight out of camera version but when I do edit them it takes quite a bit more time. How much time do you spend editing yours?

    I usually only will crop and maybe do some color adjustments. I don't want to spend precious time editing photos. So I think about that when taking photos as well.

    Depends on the photo, how big/prominent it will be on a page, etc. I enjoy playing with my photos sometimes, so I'll edit them without the intention of using them that way on a layout.

    For most layouts I will do a little color and/or color adjustment {if anything}. I'll do it right in the layout so I don't have to spend the extra time opening, editing, dragging, etc. I'll just pull the picture into the layout and then decide if it needs something. I'd say on average it takes me 2-3 minutes per photo when just creating a layout. But I'll spend 30 minutes editing a photo for fun (I'm still learning PS too, so I have to 'play' a lot to get a desired look).

    I shoot in RAW, and I do edit. I'm not sure if I could place a 'time' on the amount of time. That said, my photos are getting better and I have a pretty fast system to correct if needed.

    ps- I'm always a bit sad when I see photos posted that could have been enhanced easily and were not.

    Definitely depends on the photos - I tend to take a bazillion, esp group photos, so I can edit them to make a photo where everyone looks as good as they can look ;) Takes a long time, but its nice in the end

    I usually load my photos into ACR and batch edit, meaning clean edit 1 photo per set, then copy those settings to all the others in bridge. I only worry about more editing if I'm doing portraits or if I want a certain look for a scrapbook page or other purpose. Overall, I don't spend that much time on editing unless I get into an editing kick.

    I just fix the levels and occasionally fiddle with the curves. I am not a fan of over processed photos.

    And I wish everyone would, at least, fix the simple things - like creepy, green flash pet eyes!!!

    I edit most my photos at least a tad. I spend very little time thanks to Rad Lab.

    I've heard of doing this..and I'm intrigued because...every photo has it lighting for it's own moment.
    How cool it works for you.
