I always see someone in the forums doing a PP on someone else's photograph. I always assume it means Photoshop, but I keep thinking it's an acronym for two words. Can someone enlighten me on this term?

Wow, I've been really banging my head over this one for a while. I don't know why I didn't think of those two words!

Perhaps I should quit banging my head. :lol:

Thanks bilyblanca!

It would be helpful to have a reference to acronyms somewhere as they often crop up - the last one to stump me was BIF which I assumed is 'Birds in Flight.

So, here's a list that I'm aware of to kick things off:

BIF - Birds In Flight
DCE - Digital Camera Enhance
IMHO - In My Humble Opinion
PP - Post Process
PS - PhotoShop
PSP - Paint Shop Pro
USM - UnSharp Mask


Free free to add to these.

LBA - Lens Buying Addiction
PSE - Photo Shop Elements
CA- Chromatic Aberration
ACR - Adobe Camera RAW
RSE - RAW Shooter Essentials

Just some additions. We tend to abbreviate the software titles along with the more generic terms.

I've been wondering about ymmv (if I remember it right) meaning something like "you decide yourself, but..."

YMMV = Your Mileage May Vary, it took me quite some time to get my head around that one!
