5 Photo Effects You Need to Know
When you’re learning how to take great photographs, there’s an endless supply of tips for how to take great pictures. But the one thing no one tells you is how important the editing is afterward!
It’s true that the better the photograph, the less editing you’ll need to do. But even the best photographers will still edit their photos.
Read below to learn more about the best photo effects you can use to improve your photography.
1. Enhance the Image
If you notice your photograph is a little blurry, don’t worry! This means your camera was out of focus. An image enhancer can find the blurry edges of your image and sharpen them.
This can’t fix everything, but it can make the photograph look a lot more focused than it did before!

2. Correct Colors
Color or photo correction is one of the most popular photo tricks. Photographers love it because it’s a great way to make an image look more vibrant.
If some part of the photograph is looking a bit washed out, you can adjust the color to something more saturated. Or if a color is not as flattering as you want, you can adjust it to something you would prefer.

3. Remove the Background
Sometimes the pressure to get the perfect shot means you make mistakes because you’re focusing on too many things. By using a background removing tool, you’re able to focus entirely on the background and object, respectively.
You can take a photograph focusing entirely on the object. Then you can take a photograph with only the background, so you can make sure it’s perfect. Then you remove the background of the first image and replace it with the second image.

4. Blemish Tool
You might have taken the perfect image, but there’s something small that’s distracting you from it. This could be a pimple, a bird in the background, or anything that’s drawing the viewer’s eye when it shouldn’t.
The blemish tool lets you edit images by covering up a small spot, using another spot as a reference point. In the case of a pimple, you use the reference of a clear spot on the model’s skin, and it replaces the pimple with that sample.
5. Resize Your Images
Sometimes you’ll only realize after you’re done taking photos that your positioning or framing of the object was wrong. With resizing tools, this is not a problem!
Resizing isn’t the same as cropping. This way you can keep your image the same size, while still repositioning where the object is, zooming in, or reframing the photograph.
