Tips for Editing Images for Google Image Search
Sometimes we get lucky and can use the picture right out of the camera. Often times though an image will need a little editing to make it pop.
We use Photoshop, and with their new monthly cloud based fee program, it’s not that expensive. There are many lower cost and free alternatives. With photo editing software you can:
- Crop the image
- Adjust the physical dimensions of the image
- Adjust the file size of the image (smaller = faster load time)
- Adjust the resolution of the image
- Adjust the brightness, contrast, exposure, and color balance
- Add effects
A few simple tips on taking great pictures, editing them, and the latest recommendations for photo editing software.
We’re a big fan of Photoshop and it’s the market leader. However, you must now subscribe to Adobe’s Creative Cloud based service to access the Photoshop program for a monthly fee. You can get the whole suite of Adobe products for a “packaged price” or just subscribe to each platform (like Photoshop) piecemeal.
You used to be able to buy the software and load it onto your hard drive in the traditional way. However, Adobe has now moved to a cloud based subscription only model. You will have to pay a monthly subscription to have access to the entire Adobe Creative Cloud or you can subscribe to the individual programs.
One of the advantages of this is that you will always have the latest version with constant updates.
