Photo Editing Techniques For Photo Book Creation

Whether you consider yourself to be an amateur or professional photographer, you cannot deny that photo editing software has greatly simplified, and even improved the way photos are processed. With access to increased functionality and re-touch capability, even the shakiest hand can take photographs which look premium, once edited. Yet key to any photo editing process, is knowledge of the basal photo editing techniques, which thankfully, are all accessible with CamToPrint photo editing software. Once you’ve edited your cherished photos, compile them in one of many gift ideas inspired by CamToPrint; including photo books, digital scrapbooks, and even e-cards!

The term “photo editing” refers to the process of photo manipulation, once your images have been uploaded to your computer. For a decent range of editing capabilities, you will need a dedicated software program, with a simple interface and customizable functions. In the hands of professionals, Photo Shop is regarded as the ultimate tool for photo manipulation, however, those who don’t want to learn through endless tutorials will find CamToPrint software an easier, and free solution. To get started, all you need to do is import your photos from your camera, scanner or a computer folder and enter the editing suite, prior to selecting your preferred free scrapbooking templates.

 Brightness and Contrast


Brightness and Contrast

Brightness and Contrast

Brightness and contrast go hand-in-hand when it comes to photo editing, purely because when altered simultaneously, both have the ability to drastically alter the intrinsic values of an image. With the CamToPrint photo editing studio, you can access these settings from the “Basic Function” window, and clicking “Optimization”. Here, you are able to manually control the brightness and contrast values, while seeing them applied in real-time to the image. Contrast alteration has the ability to significantly improve colour saturation and richness within an image, while brightness can assist with photographs taken in tricky lighting conditions.

Saturation

Saturation

Saturation

Saturation adjustment controls the colour and hue levels within an image. By draining an image of saturation completely, you can create a black and white version of the photograph. Using the alternate extreme, you can flood the image saturation to create a pop-art style image. Colours tend to bleed and merge using this effect, and the primary colours are most prominent.

Subtle saturation adjustment can be used to improve the levels of colour within an image such as landscape greenery or a sunset. This handy setting can also be found when clicking on the “Optimization” button.

Effects

Effects

Effects

CamToPrint software features a range of quirky, formal and thematic effects which can be applied to photographs. Effects allow users to manipulate images using alternate image angles, mirroring and ripple effects to name a few. Within the “Effects” tab you may choose from all manner of effects including sepia (which gives photos a vintage look) and blur (which merges colours and lines, ideal for abstract photographs). Consider the application of different effects for scrapbooking layout design ideas.

Rotation

Image rotation is a simplistic “fix” option which can sometimes benefit a photograph taken from a tricky angle. CamToPrint have allocated these buttons to the bottom of the design screen, allowing one-click rotation of images both clockwise and counter-clockwise.

As well as basic fixes, CamToPrint software also offers a variety of additional capabilities which including cropping and re-sizing. These fixes can be done prior to, or during the creation of your photo book or digital scrapbook.

If you are new to photo editing software, these “fix” tools will realize a whole new way of editing your photographs for better quality; best of all, they don’t infringe upon the values of the original photo as they can be saved as a new file within the software program.

Best Stories Through Photo Books

Impressive Stories Through Photo Books
Photo books are a terrific way to share your memories in a creative, elegant fashion. Here are some things to keep in mind while putting yours together:

Photo Book

Whether you’re shooting a family vacation, your daughter’s soccer season, or a beautiful wedding ceremony, your pictures tell a story. There are lots of simple ways you can become a better storyteller:

Have a Beginning, Middle and End
• Take a visual walk down memory lane by creating a sense of time in your pictures.
• For example, at a football game, take shots of the team warming up. Snap a few frames of the landscape. Show the sunset as dusk falls in the late innings.
• By establishing time, you’re inspired to remember the entire event.

Have a Beginning, Middle and End
Have a Beginning, Middle and End

Shoot the Details
• Let the smaller moments help define your larger one – take photos of memorable road signs, menus of great new restaurants, or flashlight beams in the sand.
• Characters are an unforgettable part of any story – including yours. So shoot a friendly shopkeeper, a dazzling street performer, a playful chimp at the zoo – or any other character who made the moment special.
• Get creative with macro mode. Capture patterns on leaves, close-ups of spider webs, or the grooves of a seashell to create interesting background textures.

Shoot the details

Take Notes
• When reliving a special time in your family’s history, it’s great to have the details that made the event – so as you take pictures, take a few minutes to jot down the little things.
• Write down funny side stories, memorable quotes, or anything else that enriched your experience.
• Create an atmosphere with sensory details – how did it feel, taste, look, sound, or smell?
• Take it one step further – add your notes to your book to create an elegant photo journal.
