  • The process of changing color and light values of a photo or video to more accurately portray the portrayed scene, or meet a desired aesthetic
  • Not only aesthetic, as it can make images more bright, and/or improve contrast of colors, materials, or areas
  • Can be done via software like GIMP for photos, and Blender for video
  • VERY useful to have a calibrated monitor, but not 100% neccisary especially at the low end
