The process of editing, transforming and alteration of photographs present in the digital form is called photo editing. Traditionally, the purpose of photo editing was done by the use of airbrushes that could modify the photographs to some extent. Today there are numerous soft wares, tools and machines that can be used to do the same. Graphics of the photographs can be changed and modified by using the editing software’s and thus generate a better form of the photograph at the end.
The photographs in the digital form are comprised of the basic constituents like pixels, color, brightness, saturation and the similar properties. During the process of editing, such properties are altered and modified so that it gives a final product of a better form.
Now day’s cameras have the features of self-correction and editing, and this gives rise to better images any day, but still there are some modifications that can be achieved with the help of photo editing process only. Under listed are a few of the features of photo editing.
- Brightness Of A Photo:
Underlining the fact that a photograph might be clicked in a well-laminated place or a low-lit place, the brightness of the photo can be manipulated with the help of photo editing process. Brightening, the photo makes it more of a lighted image and then can give a bright result. If needed to reduce the same, it can be done to give an appealing effect to the image too.
- Editing The Photograph By Its Sharpness:
It is often seen that a photograph comes out to be blurred or soft. It is because the focus of the camera lens shifts to other places thereby making it blurred. The same can be improved in the process of photo editing and thus a clear image with the details of every part of the picture can be obtained.
- Change In Color:
In some of the software, it is possible to change the color of the objects in the photo and hence as an example a car of red color in the photograph can be changed to a yellow one by editing it. This gives a lot of scopes in the photo too.
- Removing Unnecessary Items From The Photograph:
With the help of photo editing, the unnecessary elements of the image can be removed. The photo editing software can be used to segregate the unwanted components, and that part of the image can be converted to a blank space suiting the background. A lot of times such unwanted things disturb the image and shift the focus towards them. But removing them would be helpful to bring the focus to the right and desired point.
- Image Cropping:
This is a feature of photo editing that can be extensively used to cut the image from the desired place so as to make a better image. A photograph with a lot of unwanted details can be changed to a better picture by cropping it and just keeping the necessary details in it.
