Photo Editing - The Basics

Good photos can make a huge difference to an advert & really help to grab the viewers attention, so it pays to take a bit of time to make the most of them.

The perfect image will be a jpg format with a maximum largest size of 960pixels. Larger will be reduced on upload, but will take longer.

* If you scan your photos, don't scan the whole scanner, just select the photo.

* If the photo can be viewed on your phone or tablet, it is far better to save the image & upload it rather than saving a screen shot but remember to abide by copyright laws.

* If you do save a screen shot, hold the device in either portrait or landscape mode to match the image to avoid banding (example below), then zoom in before saving the shot.


Screen Shots with & without banding

* So many photos are taken on dirty phones resulting in very blurry photos. Clean the lens before you start. If the photo is too dark or there is too much background, the subject will be lost.

It is always better to crop the photo to only show the interesting part, dark photos can be lightened & visa versa, images can be rotated or sharpened. If your photos are on your phone or tablet, most now allow photos to be edited or there are many photo editing app's available. Which ever method you use to edit the photos, remember to save them as new (jpg) images, then upload them in the normal way. 

Compilation images can be made up from several photos, or why not add some text to each photo? The advert heading will be shown under all of the photos, but further text can be added to each individual image in a photo editing program.

Edited Photos, much better.
