Post-processing in the digital age might be more streamlined and cost-effective than the analog days, but it’s no less confusing. With a few exceptions, the learning curve is still there and with each new plugin and update, it seems as though it increases.

To help with that is a new guide from Polarr, a browser-based editing program. Separate from its main website, Polarr’s new guide is a visual and interactive site that helps to break down the various terminology and techniques involved in post-processing digital images
