In particular, you should try to:
- Crop the photo and adjust its frame
The crop tool will let you adjust the frame of your photos directly. That in turn will allow you to remove parts that you don’t want, alter its aspect ratio, or reframe the subject in a different way.
In most photo editors it is easy enough to use, and you should be able to adjust the frame as you would a normal window. Some editors may have helpful grids that you can enable as part of the crop tool so that you can apply composition techniques such as the rule of thirds.
- Improve the white and color balance of the photos
Many photos often don’t look like they did in real life due to the fact that the white or color balance is a little bit off. If you feel the colors in your photos don’t look right, there are easy tools that you can use to improve the balance in most editors.
Generally speaking photo editors tend to have automated tools to help improve the white or color balance – often with a single click. However for more convincing results you may want to try adjusting the color parameters manually, which should be possible as well.
- Apply filters to stylize photos
Filters are extremely popular nowadays and are often used as an easy way to stylize photos. Although all editors tend to have some types of filters, the exact options that are available to you will depend on the editor that you’re using.
Typically filters can be applied with a single click. In some editors there may be a setting that can be used to control the intensity of certain filters, especially those that shade the photo with a certain color tone.
Using these tools is a good way to get started, especially if you’re not that experienced or familiar with the editor that you’re using. Each one will let you improve your photos quickly and without any difficulty, while at the same time providing you with the opportunity to become more familiar with the editor you’re using.
That being said it would be a good idea to try to get started with an editor that is intuitive and user-friendly. For example you could try using Movavi Photo Editor (https://www.movavi.com/photo-editor/index.html) if you’re looking for one.
As you become more familiar with the editor that you use, you can move on to other ways of editing your photo. Some may even be quite easy, and for example you could learn how to sharpen your photos, apply a blur effect, or even make it look more vivid. The more you experiment with the features in your editor, the faster you’ll learn how each one works.
