A Picture Editor and His Tools

A keen eye, a passion for images and a desire for good results are all key to being a great picture editor.

Though there are many ways to go about improving photos, the trend has leaned heavily toward using automated computer help, like Xara Photo & Graphic Designer, to accomplish crisp, exact results. The era of lonely darkrooms, chemical baths and manual cropping is over. With modern digital tools, photos can be edited down to the pixel to ensure that they are as perfect as possible. Most exciting is that everything is done with the ease of a mouse-click.

Using a Picture Editor to Enhance Coloration

Picture Editor

Cropping and color enhancement are two of the primary functions of photo editing software. Pick from your expansive photo archive and swiftly bring out the magic of individual moments with these tools. Cropping is the process of cutting away excess portions of an image, leaving only the best for displaying. Color enhancement is used to touch the image with anything from more depth to a bit more emotional resonance. It’s surprising how much a warmer tone brings back nice memories. Color Enhancement can be used, just like cropping, to either correct mistakes or augment aesthetics. An aged photo can be freshened up by scanning it and then changing the tints and hues. This same process can be used to impart emotions and moods in your photographs. Even if nothing is obviously wrong with the picture, there is always room for mood effects. Changing the coloring of a photo will give it very different emotions. The bluer the lighting of the picture, the more mellow and distant it will feel. Conversely, as you adjust the light to a more yellow tone, the photo will feel warmer and happier.

When everything is ready, the photos will be ripe to load onto slideshow software for easy sharing at a family reunion or birthday party! There’s a reason why people say that MAGIX produces the best photo editing software, and the picture editor Photo & Graphic Designer is no exception.
