There is always a question of time. Edit the photos or not before uploading to social? We sometimes try and make images to look better, nicer or stylish but without basic rules. Sometimes we just don’t edit photos at all. BUT..
No image editing can lead to many problems if you want to present yourself or sell your products. From travel photos, photos of yourself or small things like gold earrings or properties in real estates.
The photo boredom, disinterest and overlooking your photos or products by potential followers or clients can be crucial. Few minutes of proper photo editing can have a deep impact on your business. That is why many apps are available to edit and tweak your photos to look better for the largest social sites like
I took an image in Dubai from 124th level of Burj Khalifa through the building glass and want to place the image to my social sites like before after image.
I know that it looks a bit dull so let’s “do something” to make it more attractive.
First you should choose an image editor, one of the best is
which can be in some cases substituted with free desktop software for editing images like Gimp, Paint.NET, PhotoScape, IrfanView, XnView and online editing apps like Picmonkey, Picsart, Fotor or Pixlr Editor. You can also make some image editing tweaks in minutes like I did.
First I check Histogram and use Levels for quick basic correction,
Curves to make quick contrast and scaling down to the required size
and finally we used Sharpen filter to sharpen the image.
It looked great, but it is still in need to make it even more attractive. So we decided to add some
to add white transparent border to focus the eyes more on the buildings in the image.
