There is a wide variety of software out there that allows you to make simple and also complex changes to your digital images once they have been uploaded from your digital camera or other device. However, knowing how to use these tools effectively is another story. If you can pick a good piece of software that has the tools that you know you need, you can truly enhance the quality of your picture for great end results.
Layers can be found in a wide range of software nowadays such as Photoshop, GIMP, Paintshop Pro, and a range of other applications. They are the things which make editing an image much simpler, and they can be used to enhance the colors, change spacing, filters, saturation and add special effects.
For example, a picture of a man stood in front of the Eiffel Tower would have a few layers. The top layer of the image would be the man in the foreground, the middle layer would be the landmark itself and the bottom layer would be the surrounding scenery. Not all images have just three layers, and in fact you can choose the amount of layers in order to add depth and adjust your images.
If you are working with Apple devices, then you need to find software that supports image editing for Mac and still gives you the number of special effects tools that you require. Most Mac image editors are compatible with all kinds of devices and using your Mac to add special effects can be easy as well as effective.
For example, blurring parts of your image using a special effects tool will soften some parts of the frame and draw focus towards others. This means that if you are trying to create professional images, you can draw the viewerâ€™s eye towards the thing you wanted to capture.
â€œHealingâ€ Your Image
Healing your image means being able to erase and fix the parts that look out of place. An â€œeraseâ€ tool found in good quality image editing software will enable you to remove the top layer of a picture and get rid of ugly or distracting objects such as road signs or pylons from pictures - just highlight and remove them. Using a clone tool, you can also heal the image by selecting another part of the picture to copy and paste elsewhere which will cover up any plain parts of the image.
