Tips for Photo Editing Travel Photographs

Photo editing techniques such as cropping and levelling, shadow recovering, and highlight information is essential to achieve the best-finished result of images.

 Here we outline some guidance to help you perform them accurately

How to Crop Your Images

Crop tools let you adjust the image size and the aspect ratio. For instance, you can crop a photo from a square shape to a rectangular shape. Cropping is done for many reasons, such as publishing in various aspect ratios and formats.

Cropping can be quickly done; you have to select the crop tool and your targeted area using with your finger (for smartphones) or mouse (for computer). 

Vignetting Your Photos

Vignetting has to do with darkening or lightening parts of the image than other regions, to clarify the subject of your shot.

Vignette in some tools is restricted to the corners, but in software like Lightroom and Snapseed, you are free to darken or lighten parts of the image, not limiting to the edges.

Vignetting is especially useful for portraitures, and parts of the image you wish to bolden the subject of the picture.

How to Adjust the Contrast

Contrast does with emphasizing the difference between the dark and light parts of the image.

Increasing the contrast of an image improves the visual impact by accentuating the boundaries between those dark and light part.

How to Perform Color Adjustment

Another important aspect of editing is color adjustment. This can be done in various ways such as changing the saturation and hue of certain colors of an image,

Just as other editing techniques, one needs to strike a right balance of color adjustment; oversaturation of images can make them appear unnatural; desaturated images are most effective, while black-and-white is a fantastic choice for all images, especially for architecture, portraits, and most landscape images.
