How to Finalize Your Edited Picture
Here is the guide to finalize what you have edited. There some procedures which help you in successful editing
1. FRAMING- ROTATE & CROP
Majority of the snapshots can be dramatically improved by cropping, it strengthens the composition. Your cropping should match your print size e.g. 8×10 inches. If you don’t want to crop manually then your photo editing software can be provided with the aspect ratio and it makes the process much easier.
2. REFINEMENTS – COLORS & SELECTIVE ENHANCEMENTS
While refining the adjustment may include
Colors: Adjust the colors if they are overdone, most of the times you don’t have to adjust colors if exposure, contrast and white balance have been properly set.
Selective Enhancements: This procedure includes spot removal, sharpening and selective noise reduction and you can do it with adjustment brushes, layer masks, healing brushes and clone tools. Once you do this save the image.
3. RESIZING: (UPSIZE FOR PRINT & DOWNSIZE FOR WEB)
After altering the display size of your image you need to resize the file. The resize strategies vary and depend on whether you want to make it larger or smaller.
If you are enlarging your image for a print out then always try to perform enlargement yourself instead of relying on printer and of you if you diagnose the circular band of colored lights then your previous capture sharpening might have been applied to forcefully.
4. OUTPUT SHARPENING:
It’s the last image editing step; it offers customized settings which include considerations based on size and type of print. It also sets off softening that is often caused during re-sizing an image.
Once you are done with the editing, make sure that you are filing your digital photos using the backup files. It would be awful if you lose your image after lots of hard work.
