Default C-750 Post Processing in Photoshop

I was curious if anybody out there runs their images from the C-750 through anything in Photoshop as a matter of routine.

By that I mean do you adjust for sharpness, white balance, contrast, saturation, etc... as a rule of thumb for all the pictures that you take?

I know certain digital cameras need some amount of sharpening to get the best image quality etc.

I prefer to do these processes in Photoshop as opposed to letting the camera do it, I feel I have better control that way. I'm just looking for general guidelines on what you do to get the best images!

Thanks!

I will use either Adobe PhotoShop7 or PaintshopPro7 to do a number of things such as rotation, cropping, image resizing if I want copies for email or other, from time to time I will adjust the brightness and/or contrast or adjust the Shadow/Highlight/Midtones of a image for some reason or for tinkering with the photo itself as in layering another image in with something else changing the whole image.

I don't think this is limited to the C-750, but anyway, it's altogether a subjective matter relating to what you want from the photos. My most common adjustments are brightness/contrast and hue/saturation/lightness, but how much of each depends entirely on the results I'm looking for in each individual shot. I rarely use effects like sharpening or softening, and only then to save a photo that is substandard in quality to begin with.

I've heard some people, especially those taking macro shots, say the sharpness setting on the C750 should be turned down. I suppose this might imply sharpening later. All I normally am doing is cropping and resizing and touching up redeye and perhaps occasionally brightening up an overly dark subject -- but then I am only a beginner.
