Improving Photographs

Aug 2, 2008
Taking and improving photographs have never been easier thanks to the vast leap in digital technology. We don't have to wait anymore to have our films processed to see our pictures, we can see it in seconds through our digital camera's screen. However, it doesn't mean that our photos are mistake-free now than decades ago. Improving photographs is still a preoccupation by many. And now, whether it's their decades-old paper photos or modern digital pictures, retouching can be done easily by anyone who desires better photos.

Adobe Photoshop is one of the best digital imaging software programs available today for improving photographs. This is the software most used by graphic designers, artists and photographers. You don't have to be in the professional field however to reach the same professional results provided by Photoshop. All you need is the aspiration to better your photos along with a good tutorial guide to reach all of the potential this software offers.

Here are a few problems almost always seen in pictures:

Blemishes and Wrinkles - Everyone wants to have a little bit of character, but not in the form of blemishes or wrinkles! Of course everyone wants to look young and fresh in their photograph, but unfortunately point and shoot cameras oftentimes magnify the flaws in our faces. Photoshop can quickly take care of those age lines, uneven skin tones and unsightly blemishes as if they were never there. Everyone will be thrilled to appear 10 years younger.

Closed or Half-Closed Eyes - The camera flash can prove to be a problem for some people. The camera always seems to catch their eyes closed. In the past this would be the ruin of a photograph. Today however, that is not the case. Photoshop can correct the closed or half closed eye with ease. A good tutorial will walk you step by step through the process to a picture with everyone's eyes shining in the final image.

Unwanted People or Objects - Everyone has experienced the wrong person being in the wrong place at the wrong time in a photograph. Don't get frustrated, get rid of them! You can remove the person as if he was never there to begin with. With Photoshop this can be done with a few tools quickly and easily with the right know-how.

Exposure Problems - Under exposure and your photo appears dark. Over exposure and you lose detail in the photo. Corrections of this type are a bit more complicated to undertake especially if the exposures are extreme, but they are not impossible. With a good tutorial you can bring out the details of your photo and greatly improve its quality.

Our most memorable moments are captured with a photograph. Those in years to come will have these visual memories of what our lives were like without ever meeting us. Enhancing these photos will not only make them more enjoyable for us to look at but will make them a true picture of times past for those in generations ahead.
