Ho much time do you spend on Photoshop?

As the title says. I'm wondering how much time the pro photographers, of any or all styles, spend in the editing phase. I have always fine tuned and corrected, but with a new camera coming soon and a new city, I'm wondering if I can revamp my style with planning more shits with editing in mind. I always like to compare with people that are better than I, so DO TELL!

I've used photoshop a lot for when I can be bothered to get the images off my P&S, seeing as it gets nowhere near enough use. Having used one of my collage's somewhat old (I think it counts as old now )nikon D-40 made me see how so-so my curent camera is.

Overal I've just not had time to photograph anything recently.

When I began years ago I used PS a little bit too much. Think about 60 Minutes per Picture, filter over filter and everything that had to be done to make it at least a little bit beautiful. These days I try to use it as less as possible, and it works really good. since my equipment grew and my skills got better, I don't have to change so much. Think for my latest pictures I used Photoshop only about a Minute to add my pre-made frame and a little bit selective colorcorrection. That's all I use it for since a few months...well, if it's a portrait for sure a little bit more, my models expect clean skin, but even then I try to keep it as close to reality as I can :)

None. I rarely spend more than 30 minutes touching a photo up in GIMP.

There are better things to worry about. ;)

But to answer the question, I do not personally edit at all. For me it is a matter of patience, practice and taking the time to try to produce a great photograph.

Yeah I have patience issues. So I'll just snap 20 shots of the same subject and then figure out which I like later haha.

Good luck if you decide to take up animal photography, you'll need a lot of patience. :giggle:

First of all, I use Gimp, but when I use it, I spend about.. half an hour to 2 hours for one picture.

Another one I'm not familiar with. I've been out of the game for a while, so one more thing to google. And you have beautiful work, so it looks like it gets the editing job done. :D
