The camera club I belong to tried something interesting last week.\nPrior to the meeting, an o-o-c image was provided to be downloaded and\nmembers were asked to edit that image in any way they wanted with any\nprogram they wanted to use.\n\nSome members did the basic things like adjustments to levels or\ncurves, straightening, sharpness and cropping. But some went\nfull-bore.\n\nMost of the members used Photoshop or Lightroom. Each member who had\nworked on the image verbally listed the steps he or she went through.\nI was astounded at the number of plug-ins used: Nik, Viveza, Topaz,\nAlien Skin, and several I'd never heard of before. Several people\nused three or four programs on the image. One guy mentioned he had 37\nlayers of adjustments!\n\nI didn't participate because I had other plans for the camera club\nmeeting night, but those plans were canceled at the last minute so I\ndid go.
