How to Edit Digital Images : Editing Pictures

Hello my name is Luis Estrada and I am a software
developer. In this video I’ll show you how to edit pictures. The first thing to consider
before editing images is the software you will use to do the job. Depending on the expertise
level that you want to achieve at this, you might consider choosing a free or an expensive
but very professional software product. If you intend to only make a few improvements
for your personal photos to share them with your family and friends or to have some fun
at creating a few simple effects, a great product for you could be the Picassa software
by Google. This product is entirely free and it’s one of the easiest to use image editing
applications. Use Picassa to make common improvements to your pictures like fixing red eyes, cropping,
adjusting colors, brightness, rotate the picture, etcetera. Picassa also includes about a dozen
nice effects like sepia, sharpen, film grain, etcetera. One of the great features of Picassa
is the possibility of easily creating posters, collages, screen savers, and even small slide
show movies with audio, transitions and zoom effects. Once you finish your video you can
upload it to youtube with a couple of clicks. Also you can share entire picture albums on
the web using your existing Google account. On the other hand, if you intend to become
a professional at image editing, the industry standard by far is Photoshop CS3 by Adobe.
This application contains an incredible amount of tools for doing just about anything that
you imagine. You can even edit video clips with the new CS3 version. The other great
thing about Photoshop is that the resulting files can be exported to other popular design
applications from Adobe like Flash, Premier, Illustrator, Acrobat, After Effects, etcetera.
Photoshop CS3 is a bit expensive it costs six hundred and forty nine dollars but believe
me when I tell you that it will save you countless hours of difficult edits that you would need
to do with cheaper image editors. The nice thing about Photoshop is that you can download
a free thirty day trial to try it before you buy it. I’m Luis Estrada and I’ve just shown
you how to edit your digital images.
