How to use Photoshop? Here are 5 tips and tricks to help you. With the blogging world becoming more and more competitive, the stress on visuals and having flattering photography has become even more important. For most bloggers gone are the days where unedited photos taken on a iPhone are acceptable. Instead many of us are investing in expensive buys like SLRS and Photoshop.
Before I get started with this post, which is about hints and tips which can improve the quality of your photos, I’d just like to point out that I’ve been using Photoshop for years but I didn’t buy it specifically for my blog. I invested in it for University and graphic design purposes.
Equally, just because I’m offering advice about Photoshop, I don’t think every blogger needs it or has to edit their photos via it. I believe it’s personal preference and if you’re happy with your photos being unedited, or taken on digital camera rather than a more expensive one, it’s your choice and you shouldn’t give into pressure or let people pull you down because of that. Now let’s begin.
BRIGHTNESS & CONTRAST
Finally there’s sharpen: the ideal tool to use if your photo is slightly blurred or out of focus. The filter makes details in photos stand out – particularly wording, which you can see in the example above. However, use the filter with caution as occasionally, when overused or used on a small image, it create grains and a scratchy affect which is harsh and hard to look at.
