Before and After Step-by-Step Edit: Subtle Edits that are quick and easy, yet transformational.

The MCP Show and Tell Site is a place for you to share your images edited with MCP products (our Photoshop actions, Lightroom presets, textures and more).  We’ve always shared before and after Blueprints on our main blog, but now, we will sometimes share some favorites from Show and Tell to give these photographers even more exposure.  If you haven’t checked out Show and Tell yet, what are you waiting for?  You’ll learn how other photographers are using our products and see what they can do for your work.  And once you are ready, you can show off your own editing skills using MCP goodies.  You might even make new friends or gain a customer…. since you get to add your website address right on the page. Bonus!

    You have a mistake under ingredient 3: “The longer the focal length of your lens at a given aperture, the wider your depth of field will be.” That should be the SHORTER the focal length of your lens at a given aperture, the wider your depth of field will be. A 24mm lens will have a much larger DoF than an 85mm lens, all other factors held constant.

    Dani, you are absolutely right; the word that was meant to be there is shorter and I mistyped. I’ve asked Jodi to have the post corrected! Thanks for pointing that out.

    Thank you for explaining this so in depth. You make it seem easier then most to understand it all!
