Iona's Workflow Plan

My workflow plan is rather simple at this time. As I become more proficient I hope to be able to use Elements 5 to greater advantage. I am developing a notebook for task bar steps that I have used in removing objects, etc. that I know will be useful because if I don’t use a process several times and even if I let it go a few days, I forget how to do even the basics.

Of course I did not take the first picture since it is of me but I wanted to see if I could straighten it and bring out the colors a bit . I want to use it on a site about my trail trip.

1. Image->Rotate canvas->90 degrees
2. Crop and straighten
3. Enhance (Perhaps try Auto Smart Fix here)
a. Maybe use Auto Sharpen depending upon the picture content
b. Adjust lighting
1) Shadows/Highlighting
2) Levels
a) Input levels 23, 1.00, 255
b) Output levels 24, 233
c. Adjust colors
1) Adjust Hue/Saturation
a) Hue 0, Saturation +17, Lightness 0
2) Adjust Color Variations
3) Adjust Color Curves
a) Advanced Options
3. Filter (if there is noise) That is the only option I have tried in the filter section.

3. (In this second picture I cropped it some, made the adjustments and then croppeded the
picture because as I worked with the it I didn't like the light on the left.)
4. I have a folder where I put some pictures that I share with friends on DVDs. Some I
put on a CD and have printed at Sam’s to use as greeting cards.
5. I put each of them in a folder by date so that I can make a day-by-day diary of my
time in Alaska to be able to relive the time after I am not able to be out and about.
My others are stored by trip or occasion. I plan to use my Box.net account as backup
storage and eventually have many available on a blog sites.
