Kate from Centsational Girl recently wrote about using Picasa to edit her photos for her blog here. So off I went to give some of her tips a go.
First up, downloading the live writer… because let’s face it, the blogger photo upload feature does really suck!
Using some of her tips, I edited the original image (see above) to get the picture on your right.
Aside from cropping, I added a slight soft glow and altered the saturation (which isn’t something I’ve ever done before). Given that the colours were pretty bright to start off with, I don’t know how much the photo feels like it’s been altered but I like to think that there’s a big difference.
If nothing else, I think that the cranes are more visible and if I were to post the image in my shop in etsy, it would help give buyers a clearer image of what they were getting.
