Photo editing

Photo editing and manipulation is a key weapon in the arsenal of any good creative. And the good news is that with the right pen tablet, pen display and software, you can retouch and edit images easily, whether you’re new to the whole process or just looking to take your skills to the next level.

An understanding of the basic principles of photo editing is a must. That means learning about cropping, why backing up and not editing original images is essential and grasping the power of color and contrast when it comes to making your photos pop off the screen. Understanding common errors, from overdoing sharpness to making eyes look too bright, will also help you improve quickly.

Once you’ve mastered the basics, you can move onto working with layers, levels and curves and techniques like dodge and burn within your editing software. Spending time working on your image editing will help turn your holiday photos into travel masterpieces and transform portraits into pictures ready to grace any shelf.
