Some great photo editing techniques for
beginners In the current digital world, photos and Photoshop are closely associated. Though Indian
companies offering photo editing services use many other tools and software, Photoshop is
mostly preferred because of its feature richness, flexibility and user friendliness. Now before
outsourcing to an Indian company, if your needs are simple, you can carry out the editing
process by yourself. Below techniques can really come handy.
Remove unwanted parts
Most of the times, after capturing picture, you realize that there is much more than what you
focussed for. To get better composition, you can crop the photos and the best way to do that
is by making use of the Crop Tool. For that press the C button and select the tool. Now
using mouse, you can create a box inside the image. Then select the area that you like and
press the Enter key to get the cropped picture.
Adjust the contrasts
When it comes to the companies that offer photo editing services, its their professionalism in
adjusting the contrasts that give images a rare bliss. You can also do this and its quite easy.
The images that look gloomy can be brought to life using the Levels Tool. Pressing Ctrl and
L will open to you the Levels dialogue box and there you can see the option to adjust
contrast and tones.
Adjust the lighting due to colour shifting
When it comes to image capturing indoor, the main issue is that the lighting may get tinted
with blue, yellow or a red cast. Your eyes may not identify the difference but the fortunate
thing is that your camera perceives lights in a very different way when compared to human
eyes. Just navigate to Image > Adjustments > Selective Colour. You will get the option there.
Sharpen the blurry photographs- Dont sacrifice colour
Removing fuzzy effect is a skill that many service providers offering photo editing are expert
at. The main culprit for fuzzy effect is dim indoor lighting. Many filters are there which can
be used for making the image sharp but most of them harm the colour or distort the picture.
Keeping colour intact is the real challenge here. For that navigate to Image > Mode > Lab
colour. Then flip to Channels Panel and select the Lightness Channel. Go to Filters > Sharpen
> Unsharp Mask where you can sharpen the images. Now press Ctrl and L together to reach
the Lightness Channel and if needed highlights and midtones can be adjusted. Now bring
back your picture to RGB colour by going to Image > Mode > RGB.
