Being a Photo Editing Master in a Flash

Jun 23, 2008
Although photo editing programs nowadays seem to have all the basic (and advance!) editing tools a man needs, you have to keep in mind that not all the tools you see on the interface are beneficial. One of which is the cropping tool.

Before you start cropping all your images, you have to ask yourself, "Will the photo look better if I crop it?" If you answered no, then don't. Sometimes, cropping results to a "cramped" photo. You have to keep in mind the nature of the photo's subject. Sports photographers, for example, seldom use this tool because they feel the need of their photos to "breathe". The action is not focused on the ball (in basketball for example) only but all the players surrounding the offensive player are vital.

Perfection is almost impossible. There are always some flaws, destructions, and obstacles along the way. Development, being manifested almost everywhere, whether it is economical or technological, signifies changes. These innovations can either be advantageous or disadvantageous. They can either aggravate or resolve problems.

One field that can be said to be experiencing fantastic developments is digital photography. It can be said that it is more convenient than the traditional photography that uses analogue apparatus. Today, everything can be done. Initially, it can be perceived to be very useful but as people becomes more informed about digital photography, we have the tendency to abuse this knowledge. Today, your face can now be cropped and can serve as a dog's face. How "advanced" can things be?

Do think analogue photography also has advantages compared to digital photography? No? Then perhaps you should be enlightened about the pros and cons of both kinds of photography.

Digital photography allows the user to transfer files immediately after the shot was taken. No more films to develop, no more hassle of taking the films to the developer, no more fears of exposing your precious shots and no more unnecessary expenditures (like finishing the whole film before you can see the result). You can even edit the photo after!

Analogue photography however is much different than digital in a number of ways. Analogue photography requires your expertise in the shooting pictures since you cannot edit it after. From lighting to other background and foreground blurring, everything must be done manually.

If you are a new in photo editing and ask any professional what program to use, perhaps he or she will recommend you to use Ulead. Ulead is a very powerful tool, minus the complexity of the interface. Its latest program is the Ulead PhotoImpact and has received a lot of praises from photo editing gurus. The program has two editing modes: ExpressFix and Full Edit. ExpressFix is the tool for starters. With just a few clicks, you can edit a photo to your desired outcome. The Full Edit feature has three categories, namely enhancements, portrait touch-ups and effects. Ulead PhotoImpact interface is so easy to follow that you can edit like a pro in just a few minutes of familiarizing with the buttons.
