The sequencing of images in the album, the colours to be used in the album, the designs and backdrops to be included in the album, and, lastly, the album's cover design are all decided by the album designer. It's a well-paying job. While most photographic firms have in-house album designers, some freelance album designers collaborate with many companies.
A photographer who is also skilled in album design has a distinct edge.

The practice of modifying the data acquired by a camera while shooting a snap in order to improve the image is known as post processing. The higher the quality of the data acquired by a camera to make a photograph, the greater the possibilities of enhancement. There are an increasing number of cameras on the market that can capture RAW data. Raw files have a lot more data per pixel, which helps with post-processing and picture enhancement.
Although post-processing can assist to improve an image, it may not be able to transform a poor exposure to a good one. Depending on the desired end result, many levels of post processing are available.
