Editing basics to enhance your photos

Editing your photos is an essential step in photography. Our first goal should always be getting it right in the camera, but editing provides us a second chance to get it right or add a special touch. Simple edits like straightening, cropping and adjusting the contrast have a significant impact on the story you want your photo to tell.

Learn the following topics:

  • Straightening – rotating and flipping
  • Cropping – trimming unwanted content and adjusting the aspect ratio
  • Light – adjusting exposure by darkening and lightening
  • Color – adding or removing color intensity or converting to black & white
  • Clarity – altering the contrast to improve sharpness
  • Spot fix – removing red-eye and small touch-ups

These topics will be demonstrated using the free photo editing software in Windows 10. There are similar tools for macOS and phones.
