Before I bought my Nikon DSLR, I used my smartphone to take pictures (still do, actually). There was a basic photo editing app on my phone but I eventually downloaded Snapseed, which is an excellent tool. I highly recommend it!
Anyway, most people shared positive comments about the pictures I'd post but one or two would say, "that's edited."
It amazes me that people don't realize how many photographs we see every day in magazines, online, or elsewhere have been edited in some way to improve color, exposure, sharpness, etc... whether in PhotoShop, Lightroom or elsewhere. That's reality. Even back in the ancient days of film, we used varius darkroom techniques to process and print photos.
When people say, "that's edited," you'd think we're doing something horrible.
Just out of curiosity, how many here on the forum use PhotoShop, Lightroom or other software?
