Coming at ya today with Blog Tip Friday! Today is a [quick tip] I pulled together after doing some research for myself.
Good images in a blog post can do a lot to enhance the content and draw readers back to your website. It’s especially important for food bloggers IMO!
I use Photoshop for editing. I don’t remember how expensive it is. It can be complicated to use all the features, until you learn it that is. I’m still learning tons of stuff about the program.
I wanted to explore some free options that are easy to use. Here is what I came up with.
Photoscape I just started using this program. So far, it looks pretty great! You have a lot of the same options as Photoshop for editing brightness and contrast, etc which I do a lot with my food pictures.
PicMonkey I love this program. You can get a lot more options for upgrading to the premium version, which I did. I thought it was worth the $30! So many cool features. Check out this great beginner’s guide to learn more!
PowerPoint – I’ve actually used this a lot! You have options to edit brightness and contrast on pictures. There is a ‘set transparent color’ option that is cool, but only works well for high resolution images. You can import as many fonts as you want for images too. I was very comfortable with this program, which is why I didn’t branch out much when I first started blogging.
Gimp I have not used this myself, but it looks pretty good.
You can read more about all these and others here!
