Wow I barely even remember asking this question… maybe there was a glitch or something or maybe my prepping for finals is getting to my head a bit much.
Thanks so much for your help @dfrazer and @bennett-family! YES, my photography software (On1 2020) has a rating system, and normally… I think it’s just going to be buckling down and practicing using it consistently. Normally what I do is rating any shots that might have potential as 1 star, and then rating any “wow shots” as 2 stars (one’s I’d want to show off to the client). Any thing that’s 3 stars goes on my future portfolio.
As far as editing is concerned, I’m definitely getting quicker at knowing what an image needs before I even start playing with anything and I’m getting better at using presets and using that all-amazing sync button 😉
Thanks so much!
