    Hi everyone. I want to learn more about using RAW and post processing. I occasionally adjust jpgs and enjoy it but feel like I am stumbling about and only using about 10% of what is available (at most). I am hoping to put on a exhibition in the next 12 months too...

    I currently use aperture 3 but wondering about moving to Lightroom at some point. Either way some pointers as to resources would be helpful. Thanks!

    Get a subscriptionto KelbyOne or Lynda.com

    Video tutorials are great.

    Also, for free, check out Bert Monroy's show on Revision3.com called Pixel Perfect.

    OnOne has some good tutorials if you ever pick up the Perfect Photo suite or plugins.

    Also, I can confirm Lynda.com has some great stuff. My employer has a corporate agreement of some sort that lets me log in and use the materials at no cost, so I can't speak to the value proposition, but there is a lot of in-depth PhotoShop information. I've started watching strobist's travel photography course, really like that guy ever since I watched him on DigitalRev.

    I found Cambridge in Colour really useful, great free tutorials to demystify image processing:
    http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/photo-editing-tutorials.htm

    For me it boils down to "make the white actually white, then make the black actually black" - everything after that's just fiddling!
    EDIT - apart from lightroom's highlight slider, which is witchcraft ;)

    Another suggestion, find a local camera club? There's a load of stuff near me (London) on www.meetup.com, not sure how local it'll go for you but maybe worth a look.

    Also try www.talkphotography.com for a very UK strong forum, they'll be good for a local club recommendation.
