With the advent of affordable, good-quality digital cameras and easy-to-use editing software for the home computer, digital photography has become immensely popular. However, few of us take full advantage of the range of possibilities that image-editing software has to offer, and a little expert guidance will help you to enhance and produce fantastic photographs. This informative and accessible guide covers everything the digital photographer needs to know in order to produce great-looking photographs. It?s divided into three easy-to-use sections: the first, Basic Image Editing, describes the types of software available, and explains the essential editing tasks, such as cropping and rotating, and adjusting contrast. The second section, Advanced Image Editing, introduces layers and how to control and use them; how to apply blending options; and a vast array of editing tools and creative filters, all of which will open up endless possibilities for your images. Finally, Viewing and Sharing explains everything you need to know about storage and sharing images, how to make the best prints, and how to share pictures with the world via the internet, from using emailing to using online galleries and slide shows complete with captions and background soundtracks. Illustrated throughout with more than 450 photographs and diagrams, this practical book is perfect for anyone who is interested in digital photography and wants to learn how to use editing software to create dramatic, colourful, sharper and professional-looking images and prints.
