Click here for Post Production Survey ** Please participate **

Hello! We’re two researchers from the University of the West of England, Bristol, UK, and we’re very interested in how underwater images (both photography and videography) are captured, catalogued and post-processed using the variety of tools available currently. Longer term, we’ll be looking at ways to use artificial intelligence to enhance post-production, but firstly it’s very important to understand the ways in which people post-process their imagery.

If you could spare 10 – 15 minutes of your time, we cordially invite you to complete our survey on how you post-process your images. Indeed, we’d also be grateful if you could pass the link on to anyone else who you think might be interested.

With many thanks in advance,
Simon Emberton and Chris Simons
