I was going to start this post during the recent "The Sky is Falling" reaction to the demise of CNX2.
However, I decided not to, did not want to add fuel to the fire. Now that the dust has settled, here goes.

Being relatively new to digital post processing, my experience has been that learning the
"How" (i.e. Software) is the easy part. The hard parts to learn are:

1. If and where to crop.
2. What adjustments to apply. (Curve Work, Contrast, Saturation, White Balance, etc.)
3. Intensity of the adjustment.
4. Why a particular adjustment will make the photo better.
5. Where to apply the adjustment. (Globally or Selectively)

In my opinion, I believe that most CNX2 users, that are switching to other applications,
will now agree with the above.

Please let me know what you think.

Thanks,
Pat
