Playing with Editing

I used to think that the best photo just comes straight out of my camera, so good that no editing, adjusting or processing is needed. But the more I look around at other people’s photography and read tutorials and other wise, this seems to not be the case.

For the longest time I have had a Photo Editor installed on my computer but I have rarely used it unless I had to level a horizon. Recently I have played around with it a bit more.

As to what editor to use, I am a bit challenged. The husband is insisting on using Linux instead of Windows on our computers as it is safer and admittedly they run more smoothly, my laptop would’ve been shot a while ago but on Linux it is still hanging in there. So I have googled and googled, another limitation being budget. This is still a developing hobby, or at least it is fairly new that I am really pursuing the interest in photography. What I have come up with is a program called Pixeluvo. It is reasonably priced at $34 and so far has been able to do what I need it to do without having to study it in depth. As I discover more features, I am even happier with it.

Straight out of the camera, crooked horizon and all. Pretty blah. So what now?

So watch out for more images that have been edited in various ways. I’d be happy to hear from you which ones are the most interesting to look at. Enjoy!

    1. Those $&) (#@ sensor spots… Haven’t figured out how to edit those away. But do have a tutorial for camera cleaning that I’m hoping to look at today. Thanks for the comment!

      1. It is a reasonably inexpensive program called Pixeluvo (need something to run on Linux). There is spot healing and a magic wand but somehow I haven’t figured it out yet.
