Upload & Sell: Off
| p.1 #1 · Post Processing on a Budget |
Hello All -
Been shooting on and off for several years and recently bought a 5Dc to get back into the swing of things. I've always received unsolicited positive feedback from friends and family on my photos, though at this time it's strictly a hobby for me. Although I don't sell my prints, it's important that they look their best, and part of this has to do with post processing.
Right now I'm using PS6 and a Dell Studio laptop for photo editing, though I understand that using a laptop for PP probably isn't the best solution. In searching through various threads for PC and monitor recommendations, I've learned that a decent monitor can easily go for $1k, which just isn't in the budget right now, particularly since I'm not selling my images. It's not that I absolutely couldn't swing it, but it just doesn't seem practical.
So, I'm left wondering how best to proceed. Should I continue editing on my laptop or is there a budget friendly solution that would allow me to pick up a decent PC and monitor. I'm obviously less concerned about the PC portion, since prices are hard to beat these days, but I'm finding that a good monitor and calibration system can get expensive.
I appreciate your help in advance.
