I have been frequenting a variety of forums over the past few years and have picked up a wealth of processing tips and techniques during that time. What I have learnt is that there is no right and wrong way, but it comes down to what works for you. I have had a pro nature photographer e-mail me asking about my sharpening technique as their's was producing halos and he wasn't happy with his current results. Whilst that was rather flattering, all my knowledge has been picked up from other people, but it made me realise that I must be doing something right for someone with a lot of experience to ask me for the technique.
I have no idea how to process images for the best printing output as that is something I am just discovering. When I do find out the pitfalls etc, I will divulge my findings.
