My Favorite PP Tutorials

For the post processing challenge and several of my own images, I have a short list of PP tricks I've learned via the web that I use often. Here is my list.

Great for lightening or darkening a small area:
Move the Light - Tutorials

How to get rid of the sharpening halos:
Sharpening Halos And How To Hide Them - Tutorials

Benji's world famous Post Processing Method:
Benjamin Kanarek post processing method | PentaxLife

How to fix the sky:
How To Fix the Sky | Photography - PopPhoto.com Offers Camera Reviews and Exclusive Photo Tips

If everyone adds theirs, we may be able to make this thread a stickey. LeDave tried starting a thread like this in 2009 but I missed it completely until the Similar Threads section brought it back up.

It costs money but it was so worth it for me. Really helped me with my workflow and gave me a bunch of ideas that I've used with quite some success (getting into a gallery!).

Luminous Landscape has a lot of great stuff too, for both capture and PP:
The Luminous Landscape Tutorials contents

This is one of the best single techniques:
Luminous landscape

There's lot's more I'm sure I'll think of later...

Here's another nice technique - non-destructive dodge and burn:
http://tutorials.watchandlearnphotoshop.com/tutorials/ps/dodge_burn.html

And another good one on using the Alt/Option key when using levels:
http://tutorials.watchandlearnphotoshop.com/tutorials/ps/levels_adjustment.html

Both of those come from this website:
Free Video Tutorials from Watch and Learn Photoshop Photoshop Tutorials Blog
They seem to all be pretty old (Photoshop CS2), but most of it still applies. There's also a link for a bunch of free plugins, some of which look interesting.
