Whenever you download images from a memory card, it’s essential to make a backup, either to an external hard drive or on a cloud storage service. This reduces the risk of images being lost if your computer breaks down. It’s also vital to do so before you open an image in your photo editing software.
Editing an original image and then saving it means you can’t fix major mistakes or return to a picture and start a fresh edit if you’re unhappy with how things have turned out. This is especially true if you resize an image, only to find a client has a different vision of what the final edit should look like.
While it can be tempting to make extreme adjustments to an image’s contrast using your photo editing’s automatic tools, doing so can lead to dark areas becoming too dark and white areas becoming too white. Push the contrast too high and you can ruin a good picture. This can be easily avoided by using curves. Curves allow you to make changes to contrast that are a lot more detailed, giving you the chance to be more selective about how you tweak an image. Create a new adjustment layer when you do so and never edit on the main image – this will allow you to see how any changes to contrast compare to the original. Plus, it gives you the option to start again if required.
It can be tempting to showcase your advanced photo editing skills by brightening the eyes of your subject. But making them too bright can easily make them appear otherworldly and alien, something to avoid when working on realistic portraits or animal photography. The dodge and burn tools will help you improve your technique, allowing you to make minor adjustments right down to a few pixels if you wish. Dodge irises to make them stand out, use white balance adjustments on the whites of the eyes to help colors stand out and then burn around the irises to boost contrast.
