This week is all about easy photo editors that will help you get your images looking fantastic for social media, online sales, and craft show applications.
The ability to create great photos has become a necessary skill for craft professionals. Whether you promote your business online or sell at shows, your product shots have a huge impact on your success.
Taking the photo is the first step in creating compelling images, the next step is editing your images so they are at their best for each specific platform you are using. You may need to slightly alter brightness or color to get the best and truest representation of your product, and you will almost certainly need to crop or resize your images to fit the specific requirements of each platform.
