Techniques for Enhancing Your Images
- Crop and straighten: Sometimes all an image needs is a bit of cropping and straightening to make it look more professional.
- Adjust exposure and color: Use the exposure and color adjustment tools to make sure your image is properly exposed and has accurate colors.
- Sharpen: A little bit of sharpening can make your image look crisper and more defined.
- Remove distractions: Is there something in your image that’s distracting from the main focus? Use the clone stamp tool or the content-aware fill tool to remove it.
- Add text: If you’re creating a graphic for social media, consider adding text to make your message clear.
