One of the main advantages of modern digital photography is the ability to edit photos prior to printing or sharing them. There are many different photo editing apps and software packages to choose from, and they will enable you to make all kinds of adjustments to a whole host of elements on your images.
Most photo editing software packages and apps will allow you to make adjustments across a range of different elements, and this may include the ability to remove red eye, cropping, blemish removal, color enhancement, sharpening or softening the image etc.
Resizing your Images
Because digital photography works on the amount of pixels in a photo, it is possible to resize the images by making them larger or smaller. Although, the downside to this is the reduction of the image quality should be your adjustments be big rather than minor.
Flipping or Rotating your Image
This is a very handy feature to have, as it allows you to rotate the image, especially if you have scanned an image on to your computer and it is upside down. All it takes to get your image the right way around is a couple of clicks of the mouse, which is a lot faster than having to rescan the image.
This is another handy feature of many photo editing apps and programs, as it gives the user the opportunity to remove red eye, blemishes, and scratches and even remove items and people that are not wanted in the image. All of which will help to enhance the final image.
Contrast and Color Alterations
After our best efforts at trying to capture the perfect image, there are going to be times when the image appears dull and lifeless, and this is usually do to with the color and contrast of the image. Being able to adjust the color and contrast of an image is one way in which you can add new life and vibrancy to your photos.
You will also have the option of turning a color photo into black and white, as well as being able to add spot color to black and white photos.
Adding Text and other Images
There is also the option of adding text or other image to an image, which can be useful when it comes to adding a much needed note about the photo that you have taken. You can even add speech bubbles, and other cartoon images that can make your photos fun and one of a kind.
