Editing photos with Aftershoot EDITS is a game-changer for photographers, but we want to ensure you get the most out of it by having your training catalog accurately reflect your unique editing style. Here's what you need to keep in mind:

Diversify your training catalog

When building your training catalog, you want to make sure it's as diverse as possible so your AI Profile can handle a variety of editing scenarios.

People often make the mistake of only adding their portfolio shots, but then they struggle to edit images taken in different lighting conditions. So, don't just dump all your best portfolio shots into your training catalog.

Instead, include images taken in different lighting conditions, such as indoor, outdoor, flash, low light, and bright scenes. This will increase your profile’s versatility.

Consistent color profile

We recommend using a consistent color profile across all images in your training catalog. You can choose one of the standard profiles, like Adobe Color or Adobe Standard, or use a specific camera profile if your camera has one. This consistency will ensure your profile can make more accurate color adjustments.

Experimentation is encouraged

As a human being and a photographer, you probably have inherent biases that affect how you edit. For example, you may edit winter weddings differently than summer weddings.

Experimentation is key to finding out what works best for you and your editing style. Creating a more balanced AI Profile – including various conditions such as cloudy days, different locations, and different lighting – will produce better results than dividing your sessions into specific categories.

Creating a balanced or more specific profile?

You can do both! You can create editing profiles for each type of shoot you typically do. For example, you can create an engagement profile tailored to your common engagement sessions – those that take place at sunset, with the sun still out, and in similar locations.

The bottom line

The key is to strike a balance between consistency and diversity. By following these tips and including a diverse range of images in your training catalog, you'll be on your way to creating an editing profile that perfectly reflects your editing style. Don't be afraid to experiment and see what works best for you!
