As a frequent traveler, I've learned to pack lightly and only carry a Chromebook (which is perfect for traveling because of its compact size). Problem: I can't download any photo editing software to it. Solution: I do have access to internet and with a browser I'm able to use BeFunky!
Here are some of my favorite tips for editing with BeFunky's creative tools:
Tip #1 - Keep photos simple and sweet:
Simple photos keep my blog posts clean and they seem to me more professional looking! I achieve this by making sure to adjust my images with the Brightness, Contrast, Highlights and Shadows option.
Tip #2 - Save your favorite effects
Save time by saving your favorites! Sometimes, I like to spruce up my photos by applying various filters, effects, etc. Instead of looking through BeFunky's extensive filter list, I make sure I have my "favorites" saved.
Tip #3 - Experiment
- Try blending some effects, you'd be surprised what this can achieve, just don't over do it!
- Make a collage! When you have too many great photos of one single event and don't want to overwhelm your readers or your album with too many photos, a collage comes in handy!
Here are two examples of how quickly and easily I can edit my photos while traveling:
Step 1: Exposure
After you've uploaded your photo, you can enhance it by adjusting the Exposure first and then (if necessary) proceeding with Brightness, Contrast and Highlights.
Step 2: Effects
The third icon is my favorite! Effects can completely change your photo, depending on which "filter" you choose. One of my favorites is Chromatic 1.
Step 3: Textures
One of my other favorite textures is Bokeh 1 + Bokeh 6. I believe it suits this picture perfectly because it adds a magical feel to it. Make sure to play around with the opacity to get the perfect finishing touch!
Step 1: Essentials
I thought the picture was too dark in the beginning, so I increased the brightness along with the contrast to make it pop. I played around with the shadows and highlights.
Step 2: Back to Effects
The easiest way to improve a photo is to put a filter on it! I love how BeFunky lets you adjust the strength so you can either decrease or increase its intensity.
Step 3: Photo Editor > Effects > Cross Process #1
I loved Chromatic's warmth but the photo was looking lighter than I wanted and Cross Process #1 added the perfect balance!
