Question from Nedra about
Free Photo Editing Download
I'm the SBI
owner who posted the "Blurry Pictures" topic in the SBI forums.
reviewed the "Photo Editing" section of your
site, and I notice you use
Photoshop, which I've read is an excellent software for editing
don't own Photoshop, and I have zero knowledge of photo editing. I
understand dpi and pixels etc.
I'm just trying to get flawless photos, and
still meet SBI requirements. Is there an
'easy' way to do that?
P.S. - Will downloading a trial version of
Photoshop benefit me?
Thanks for visiting better-photographs.com
requirements" I assume you
mean picture size, resolution and file size and type.
There are quite a lot of free photo editing programs that you can
download or use on-line - picasa, fotoflexer, phixr, irfanview, picnik
- to name but a few. (There's a link to picnik in SBI
iteself.) A search for "free
photo editor" in Google lists these and many more.
These can do all that you need so if you just apply the principles
outlined in the "Photo Editing
section, you should
be OK. It's when you want to progress beyond basic editing that you
will need Photoshop or one of the other chargeable packages. As you
mentioned, there is a free one month trial of Photoshop so it's worth
having a go before you commit. Contact me again if you have any further
problems and I'm happy
to help if I can.
Of course, there's nothing to beat getting it right in the camera which
is where the "Photography
" section together with the tutorials
can help you.
