If you have MS Word and other softwares that can create specific graphics or art fonts, then with Photobie you can simply capture it and paste it to any image. First, let's touch on a pretty important question: Why do we need to edit our photos anyway?
Point-and-Shoot (P&S) cameras are often used on some sort of auto or preset mode that only guesses on your photo-taking needs, sometimes (often) leading to a washed-out or dark or otherwise imperfect photo. In the example above, the "before" photo could easily be accepted as an okay addition to our family photos--because I'm not a photographer.
I've highlighted several free photo editing options perfect for the average person's daily photos. Once I do a quick purging, I then copy the photos over to my computer in the appropriate folder (I organize my photos by year, then by season--spring, summer, fall, winter). Basic editing includes things like exposure (brightness, contrast), colors (saturation, temperature), and cropping. I used to think I could capture a photo and just crop it later, but that can alter the image's quality, so I'm learning to frame a photo how I want it.
Sometimes I'm a little off when holding the camera and the photo needs to be straightened a bit. PicMonkey has an "Auto Adjust" option that attempts to fix exposure and color all in one click (like above). Note for beginners: Get the playing out of your system before going crazy editing all of your photos.
Editing your favorite photos before printing also assures that you're displaying and preserving quality images. However, with a little editing love from PicMonkey, the "after" is something I'm a little more excited to print and keep as a cherished memory. These are the things that will (hopefully) improve the photo and make it better for printing and displaying. But sometimes cropping is necessary--either a little to cut out the edge of something in the corner of the photo, or a lot to better frame the photo and put the subject back in focus, like my photo above.
If the photo was taken in really good natural light, then it can probably be sharpened a bit if needed without making the photo worse.


I generally don't use these features, mainly because my pictures are predominantly of my kids and they're already perfect.
Now with PicMonkey, I tend to use Intrepid faded between 75 and 90% (or Lomo faded to about 85 or 90% if I want to enhance the colors), then sometimes Polaroid Film to 85 to 90%.
These can be a lot of fun to play with, but really aren't necessary in everyday photo editing. Please download the latest version of the Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, or Windows Internet Explorer browser. Maybe you like the photos your handy lil' point-and-shoot (or iPhone) captures and don't see a need to improve on an already good thing. Getting into the habit of editing helps zero in on showcasing just the best photos, freeing your energies of the hundreds (even thousands) we can end up with in a year.
It's easy to take a hundred photos just in one afternoon, and they will not all be edited or even kept.
There's too much background going on in this photo, and the edges aren't processed right and are distracting, so I cropped them out.
Sometimes, PicMonkey gets really off on the exposure or thinks that nothing needs to be changed, then I can manually play with the options to find something that works. It isn't always real accurate, so sometimes I prefer to "Auto Adjust" exposure and color separately so that I can see the changes and fix them as necessary. If the photo is meant to be online or is of an object, then heavy effects can be more playful (a la Instagram). Once you play with them a bit and try out a few, it's a good idea to settle into your favorites. They enhance images in a blog post, but in my opinion they aren't really appropriate for photos to be printed or preserved as family photos. Tastes in photo editing can change, so try to keep that in mind as you settle into the editing features that work for you.

Whatever your reasons, set them aside for a few minutes--just long enough to imagine a way for beginners like you and me to have family photos that we're proud of.


Even if you're not convinced to edit all of the photos you decide to keep, then maybe you'll choose to edit at least those that are sent in cards, printed in a photo book, or enlarged to display in your home. I usually start with viewing the photos on my computer while they're still on the SD (photo memory) card.
Then, if I get tired or have to quit editing for some reason, I have at least a couple great photos edited and ready to share on Facebook or print, or whatever else I hope to do with them. I most often use "original proportions" when cropping so that it can easily be printed or used like my other photos.
Highlights and shadows often adds the light and definition I'm looking for without over-exposing the photo. If there's white in the photo, I'll adjust the temperature until the object looks closer to white. Free photo editing is pretty basic and can quickly make a person look goofy if not done right. However, if the photo is meant to be displayed or printed for a photo album, go light on the effects so the photo prints well and still looks good after the trend of over-edited photos has passed. This will simplify editing, and keep your photos looking cohesive when you print them for an album or post them on Facebook. If you find these posts helpful and upgrade to Royale, please consider using one of the links above to do so. In this post we have included 20 Awesome After Before Photos - Retouched by Adobe Photoshop. I delete any that are blurred, eyes closed (or, worse, half-closed), or otherwise not worth keeping. If you do choose to, say, add a tan or tint lips, just go light so it blends in and looks natural. If I took a bunch of photos of, say, Ian walking down the sidewalk, then I usually select the best 1-3 and delete the others.
