Whenever I take a photo, I would use the Auto Tune, Auto Contrast and Auto Color functions in Photoshop to make the image looks better.
However, lately, I realize that the auto level might not make my pictures look better. Here are some original photos and compare with how they like after Photoshop. I like the original ones better. The color is more warm and vivid.
This goes to show that we can’t just automate this process. I still need to use my own eyes to judge what is good.
However, this doesn’t mean that Photoshop cannot make your picture looks better. Here’s an example of how the image looks a lot vivid after Auto Tune, Auto Contrast and Auto Color. I do wish I can automate this but I think it is best to test each photo to make sure the ‘automatic’ process in Photoshop is enhancing the picture.
