How To Edit Photos – Easy Ways To Enhance Your Photos

Some people are just pro’s at taking great pictures. But most people just take average pictures. If you are one of them, you can edit photos in very easy ways and improve them dramatically.
Sure, you can have a good or great digital camera, adjust the settings as you are supposed to, and even produce a good picture. But sometimes it just doesn’t look quite as good as it could.
And even if it does look pretty good…pretty darn good…I would venture to say that with some simple photo editing, your picture can be great.
Here are the main types ways to edit photos which can greatly improve your images:
1. Saturation
2. Lightness and Darkness
3. Sharpening
Do you have to do all of them? Maybe. And maybe not. You can try each one to see if it enhances your image or not.
Saturation
This adjustment will make colors more vivid. How about making the sky in your landscape just a bit bluer and the grass a bit greener?
Most photo editing programs will adjust, or saturate, all elements in the photo. However, some of the more sophisticated ones will let you select areas to manipulate while leaving the rest of the picture alone. It all depends on which software you are using.
Be careful not to over do it, as your goal is to enhance it while still keeping it real looking. Saturate just a little bit at a time, and increase it if you feel it could use some more. You can always reverse your editing.
Brightness and Contrast
Sometimes a picture might come out too dark. By using this adjustment, you can lighten it up and make it brighter. Likewise, there are some images that need to darkened, or toned down. These manipulations can make a big difference in the quality of the photo. By adjusting the contrast, you can make a photo softer or more vivid.
Sharpening
This is something I try to be careful with. If you over sharpen, things can start to look jagged. In addition, sometimes a softer look can be very nice. You can sharpen slightly to see if this improves the image or not.
When editing, I like to use software that let you see the before and after images side by side. This helps in judging whether the picture is improved with each subsequent edit.
There are many free photo editing software programs that will work and be simple to use. If you want to really get involved in photo editing, you might also try one of the more sophisticated programs. They offer many more types of photo manipulations.
Some have a steep learning curve if you want to learn the more intricate manipulations. However, most of them let you start out in a simple way. If you find one that you feel you might like, see if they have a trial period so that you can try it out. Once again, many photo editing programs are free.
If you want to consider additional types of photo editing, here are a few you will find in most programs:
1. Cropping
2. Red-eye Removal
3. Resizing
4. Sepia
5. Highlights and Shadows – more sophisticated software
6. Exposure – more sophisticated software
