The first tip is to enjoy the editing part. As much as many photographers these days say, “shoot more”, “edit less”, “wouldn’t you rather spend your time photographing than editing” and yada, yada, yada you have to learn some proper editing techniques. Editing is absolutely essential to digital photography as the work in the darkroom is to the analogue photographers. Those people thinking a photo straight out of the camera and un-edited is somehow better, truer or whatever excuse they can find to not edit their photos are cheating themselves. Even the best photojournalists apply some kind of post-processing to enhance the story.
