    Creating your own photo editing workflow is not difficult, and actually you already have one but you didn’t realize. The most important is to realize that you are are actually using your own editing technique and create presets and actions to so that you speed up the process.

    Standardize your workflow by creating presets of your adjustments and create actions of the most important steps. This will consolidate your style and will speed up the editing of your photo.

    Purchase an action pack or create your own resources

    I’m not a big fan of action packs. Over the internet you can find lots of “professional” actions which will “guarantee” success on every photo.

    Many people purchase these photo editing action packs thinking they will create magic on their photos. I purchased myself one of these packs and truth is that the effect you see on their demo photos is the result of applying a few actions that will do basic adjustments.
    Then you have to mask areas and you almost never end up with a result similar to what you envisioned when looked at their demo images unless you’re a really good retoucher.

    Create your own resources

    As a photographer you should be able to create your own backgrounds and stock photos. For bird photography editing, blurred backgrounds are very useful because you can create different looks for your shots.

    Also, these backgrounds are easy to blend with simple masking using the technique I will show you next.
