Camera-But, Photos Not So Good.
"I’ve got a
few semesters of college training under my belt, an expensive camera
(thanks, Husband!) and plenty of ambition. But for some reason, my
photos never seem to turn out quite right. They’re too blue-ish or
blurry, not bright enough or too contrast-y. I’ve thought about
purchasing special software to help correct my digital snapshots, but
was always intimidated by their price and complexity.

CorrectPhoto's Easy to Use Photo Editing
One of the easiest, yet most useful, aspects of CorrectPhoto is
one-click color correction. All I have to do is find something in
the picture that is black, white or gray and click on it – the rest of
the photo automatically adjusts to that color scheme. Brilliant. Check
out the photo of when I met my new puppy for the first time; it was
taken indoors with no flash, so it was very yellow. In CorrectPhoto, I
clicked on my white hoodie and the rest of the photo was “fixed” to take
out the weird tones. The photo still isn’t great (the dog kept
squirming!), but the color is much more accurate now.
Little Cropping Helps-Use CorrectPhoto's Standard Crop Formats (4x6
also easy to give photos a bit more “punch.” The photo of the
bride and groom was taken from far away (Santa didn’t bring me a
zoom lens this year), so lots of unnecessary stuff got in the
frame. But I quickly cropped the picture to the right dimensions
– CorrectPhoto has the most-used sizes pre-programmed – which
made the photo much more exciting. After that, I pumped up the
color saturation and adjusted the contrast to make the colors
stand out even more. It took less than three minutes to take
this from a so-so shot to a dramatic, frame-worthy memory.
I think my
favorite feature of CorrectPhoto is the “Before and After”
view – I can see, side-by-side, how my enhancements are improving the
original. I didn’t even realize how off-tint some of my pics were until
I compared the raw versions with the better versions.
with CorrectPhoto. For someone like me – an amateur shutterbug who wants
beautiful, true-to-life snapshots – it provides the right amount of
options without being confusing. Next to my camera, it’s the most useful
tool in my photography kit.
