Books about Post Production Softwares


To create digital images is not enough to know how to take a picture: the post production is integral and essential part of the process of finalizing a photograph. The modern photographer can’t just use his DSLR with mastery, but also has to master the techniques of post production and keep up to date with the continuing development of editing softwares (eg. Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop). Below is a list of books, halfway between manual and divulgative books, which deepen the functions and in some cases the tricks to master the post production softwares most used by professional photographers. For each book there’s a short review, in addition to the link to Amazon’s store and to the digital versions on iTunes and Google Play, if available.
