BetaTales suggests a seven-step plan for print journalists wanting to move into digital media, including getting to grips with social networks, online journalism, photo editing and making short video clips.
Step 3: Learn basic photo editing
In big print organizations specialists often take care of the photo editing. So far, at least. Hardly any web site editorial organization can afford that luxury. Instead it is expected that all journalists know how to crop and photo shop an image. And I tell you: There are hardly any journalists under the age of 30 that do not know photo shopping today at some level.
