Photo Editing Effects

  • Stylizing Action – What could be cooler than making an action photograph look more dynamic. You simply have to create duplicates of your original image and change the color channel so you will have a variety of color scales to work with. Predominantly green or blue are great for dynamic, stylized action photos. When the stylized image duplicates are placed side by side in a single layer, a good blurring effect is achieved.
  • B & W – For the fact that people are constantly bombarded by color, vintage styling remains important. When trying to emphasize the action that your subject is performing, a Black and White photo is effective. High contrast photos tend to underemphasize the background, so be sure to adjust the white balance and brightness so as to get the right balance of light and color your final product.
  • Pre-set Filters – Instagram and several mobile photo editing tools use pre-set filters to change the color temperature and contrast level of photos. Take advantage of your iPhone or Android device to take photos! Being away from your PC or Mac shouldn’t hinder you from using available tools to express and create yourself. Nevertheless, always remember to shot at highest possible setting. It’s worth noting that you can remove pixels from an image but cannot really add pixels to it once an image has been shot. That’s why photographers like to shoot in the RAW format, knowing full well that it consumes a lot more space.
  • Sharpen Images – Digital sharpening through Photoshop and other similar software reduces or removes noise but also sacrifices some of the detail on your photos.
