Even with my new Canon G9 and all underwater white balance and speed, I still have to post process my images so it would be viewable. It is time consumed but I do not know other way. Quick view size image and large details images are on my web sites ( Enjoy and I appreciate any comment.

Ben, Even with my canon - I have to post process the images. The only images that I can get away with minimal post processing are those that have huge contrast with the subject being the only lite item. But these don`t always work for the finished objective. - Johanna

i use GIMP, which is a free photo processing software that is equal to Photoshop to edit my shots.. but the quickest way i have found is to open up a flickr account ( because they have partnered up with a group called picnik. picnik is a built in program that lets you do some pretty basic editing to your shots and then have them be uploaded right back into flickr with a touch of a button. now.. the easy part is in picnik, if you select the "auto-fix" button, it usually is a pretty smart algorithm and picks up on the natural saturation and desaturation of colors that happens with underwater photography... the greens, reds, etc... this way you can upload all your shots into one set and then go through each one, click on auto-fix and clean them up.. and the ones you really wanna make nice, you can use gimp or whatever program, but on a whole, it simplifies the whole process. good luck!

Yeah, postprocessing is a must. No matter how good the picture is, the filtration of color from the water needs to be corrected. I don`t know if pictures can be posted on the board. This is an experiment.

Hmmmm....I guess you can`t post photos, huh?
