Comments:

. . .The following are links to workflows and discussions for favored PWP techniques that I use for 'serious' image post-processing.   The example workflows usually will start with a 24-bit color [8-bit] jpg minimally processed in-camera download file but a starting 48-bit color [16-bit] tiff image file resulting from a minimally processed 'RAW conversion' or 'scan' will work as well.   While the suggested techniques are based upon PWP3.1h, there should be little or no need for translation to PWP3.5x or later unless as noted.   Not every image needs the suggested techniques.   In fact, some of the suggestions may seem a bit 'over the top' only because it can be done...   So be sure to reconcile the techniques with your own imaging style and preferences.   If there are questions, errors, or broken links; please contact me. . .
