Hey all, good morning.

I have a quick question and it is regarding PS. Is there a way I can enhance photos that aren't the best quality without having to go over them personally?

Is there a plug in for this?

I have several images, some of which I want to use for banner images but they aren't the best quality and as you all know PS isn't my best area ..

They are mostly just faded pictures of signs that look really awesome and the camera didn't do the images justice..

Please let me know when you have a chance, thanks guys!!

What version are you running?
I can't hear what I'm looking at.

Well, here 'good evening' would be more appropriate... ;)

I would never risk changing something on a bunch of images without inspecting them one by one. Haven't you got the online Adobe suite, and is Adobe Lightroom included? Lightroom is actually a part of PS that deals specificly with photos, how to make them better, and by using that you don't see all the other bells and whistles of PS which would be a bit confusing if you are just going to enhance photos.

If you have Lightroom and need some briefing, I can probably help out.

My PS has a batch processor. You can output to a different folder leaving the originals intact.

Yes... work on duplicates and save the originals. ;)
Unless all the photos need identical adjustments, a batch process won't be much good.
How many photos do you need to adjust?

Hi Matt,
"Judd's" on the bottom image seems washed out to me. The rest is much better.

Change the tone curve a bit, perhaps, and remove excessive highlight.

Okay I will work with it, I don't use lightroom very much but am getting used to it.

I'll let you know how the next image works out.
