Evaluation of Pictures before use in editing 2. September 2012 Administrator Photo Editing (0) This are some tips to help you choose great images to edit and will make editing much easier. Tip 1: Choosing large resolution images. When searching for images avoid using images that are less than 2 megapixel. Try to find images that 5 megapixel or higher. Large images offer more detail, especially when zooming in, offer greater color than 2 megapixel or less. Tip 1.5: If you choose to scan you images, use high definition scanner that scans images at 300 dpi (Dots per inch) or greater. Tip 2: Choose images that are related to your theme. Example. If are intending to edit an image with sea or sky, try to find images that have blue in them (although images can edited for color changes). Tip 3: Try to find images that have solid color at the background. These images are great to cut from because when using tools like the magic wand in photoshop, the image is correctly selected. Tip 4: Use stock photo for editing. Already edited images are a bit harder to edit and stock photos online tend to be of great resolution. Tip 5: Choose your color tone well. If the image is intended to be shown on the web RGB is the best option but if the images is intended to be printed use CMYK that has a larger color spectrum. N.B . The printer needs to be CMYK for the best quality images. Tip 5.5: If the an images are vector based. Save the image in pdf format, to keep image quality and also compress the size of the image.
