“A picture is worth a thousand words” is a very old saying. Anyone who owns a camera can click a picture. But to have an image worth memories you need to make it better and fine tune it to look the best. There are lots of editing tools for this purpose.
You have offline software like Picasa, Lightroom, and Photoshop etc. Then you have online tools like Snapfish editing tools. This is best for someone who doesn’t want to download or purchase full software. All you have to do is open an account in Snapfish and upload your photographs. Under the ‘edit and organize’ tab you will find all of the snapfish editing tools.
Let us take a look at the features available in the Snapfish Editing Tools.
Red eye removal:
Many a times a beautiful group photo will be spoiled by everyone’s eye looking eerily red. But by using the red eye removal tool of Snapfish you can easily remove the problem with just a click of mouse.
Using the snapfish tool, you can crop your image as per the need. The SmartCrop tool removes the distractions from the frame and removes the excess stuff at the edges of the tool. The centre of the photograph is highlighted and resized accordingly.
An overexposed or an underexposed photograph is always a downer. Using snapfish editing tools, you can correct the contrast level of your photograph easily. Select the ‘auto correct’ tool under the ‘color correct’ tab if you don’t want to spoil it. The software will judge what the right contrast for your photo is and give you a balanced looking photograph. You can also play around with the photo and make an artistic image out of it.
You need not stick to plain colored images. Check if black and white shot will work more or if giving it a sepia tone will bring about more depth in the image. You also have other colors that you can chose as tints and make a pop art out of your image.
So, go for it. Make your photographs better !
You have just returned from a holiday to an exotic location and have all your photographs with you. Now you have several options on how to preserve these memories. You can upload them onto some online photo account or make a photo book out of it.
Photo books are very different from photo albums. Unlike the latter, photo books are bound with pictures normally printed directly unto the paper. There are several options where you can make a photo book. But if you have a copy of Photoshop at your desktop, you can make a photo book of your holiday memories all by yourself.
First open the Photoshop picture editor and edit the photos you want to include in your photo book. Make sure that the photographs look the way you want them to. If needed add captions which you want to accompany the photograph
Next save all the photographs in a single folder. Now choose this folder and drag and drop the photographs as per the order you want them on the book. After the photos are selected, click on the Album button and create an album.
Once you finish selecting the pictures, click on the ‘Create’ tab and choose the ‘Photo Book’ option. Using the dialogue boxes available, choose the layout and number of pages for your book.
Next choose a theme for your photo book pages. Add background and frames to each page.
You can resize, replace and move the pictures around the book as per your wish. You can also play around with the layout and theme of the book. These options can be found in the Content panel on the left.
Save your photo book.
Now you can use this file to print it at your local photo printing shop or you can upload it to an online photo printing website and order as many photo books as you want. Now you will have a beautiful photo book holding the memories of your holiday.
One normally spends 2/3rd of their daily time at work. At such cases, the workstations are extensions of your own personality. To depict the true nature of yourself, you might want to decorate your cubicle depending on how you want others to understand you or what your interests are. Sprucing up your workstation can be as much fun as decorating your home or thinking of a cool theme for your pool party.
As long as you do not violate any of the company policies, you can design your workstation in any way you want it to look like. The following are some of the ways you can decorate your workstation.
- Simple Picture Frames: Many may feel that it is cliché to have a picture frame of your family members in your office cubicles. But you have to realize this has a timeless appeal and is very classy. Instead of keeping a single frame, you can decorate your table top with sets of frames with pictures of your family, your friends, and your life partner and so on. You can even put up a picture of your cat or the dog here.
- Collage: you can go a step above and make a collage out of pictures. You can use software like Adobe Photoshop or Picasa and do it digitally or you can cut out the pictures manually and stick them to make a collage. You can also make it interesting by including words, messages or pictures from dailies and magazines
- Picture frame out of exotic photos: If you are not a people person, you can use photos of exotic locations or exotic flowers to spruce up your workstation. Try printing the photographs in postcard formats and paste them at your workstation in some pattern. This adds beauty to the wall and will increase your popularity at your office.
The above are only few suggestions to decorate your workstation. You can make it in any way you wish until you don’t violate your company codes.
