    Default My Workflow

    Photoshop CS6

    Open and crop image
    resize to 1600
    recrop to permitted size and centre
    zoom in and run neat image
    run auto tone/auto contrast/auto colour
    Run shadow/highlight
    adjust exposure
    Unsharp if needed.

    Save.

    I know nothing of layers, histograms.

    Anyone suggest other workflows?

    Countless workflows exist I'm sure; I even use different workflows depending on the image so to say one is correct over another is nearly impossible.

    I would, however, recommend removing the two following steps from yours if you plan to upload any more images:

    - run auto tone/auto contrast/auto colour
    - Run shadow/highlight

    The former because probably best to avoid auto-anything, and the latter because that's very likely to introduce editing artifacts that will result in an overprocessed rejection.

    In general, my steps are:

    open in ACR
    adjust exposure/WB/CA correction
    export as jpeg/tiff
    open jpeg/tiff
    level
    crop
    sharpen
    resize
    save as jpeg (if tiff)
    final exposure/sharpening adjustments if needed

    Some of these steps could change in order or even be removed for certain images, as like I said, there is no uniformly 'correct' way to process an image.

    I export to 16-bit tiffs sometimes when there is a smooth gradient in the sky, as they tend to show much less compression/banding in that area than if starting with an 8-bit jpeg. If that's not a potential issue, then straight to jpeg is fine.

    Thanks I'll try that. btw the rejection photos are more revealing/detailed, do you use a special viewer?

    Thanks,

    Not sure exactly what you mean, but images are screened at whatever resolution you upload them.

    Your pics are are more revealing, I'm sure the rejections would go down if we had your software?
