You Get What You Work For, Not What You Wish For – Unknown
This little series is well and truly on it’s way. I’m loving it each week and hope you guys are to! If one person can take something from these posts then I’m over the moon with that!!
Here’s a few posts of what I’ve covered so far:
This week I wanted to talk about my Photo Editor Tools
A few weeks back I showed you my list of websites I use for free photos (link above). Today, lets talk about what I do when I have my own pictures to use in my posts.
I have 2 main go to app’s that I swear by. Without them, I’m not sure what I’d do!
I use a Mac so for any PC users, I’m not sure if it will be the same…..
Fotor Photo Editor
Fotor is an excellent choice for all those that want professional looking results without having to buy and learn how to use Photoshop
This little beauty enables me to crop, enhance, border, filter, add texture or text, focus and create collages ALL IN ONE PLACE!
Its FREE and super EASY to use. When I say super easy, I mean it. You can also batch edit photos with the same filters and borders. Handy!
ImageOptim makes images load faster. Removes bloated metadata. Saves disk space & bandwidth by compressing images without losing quality.
This app I came across while trying to speed up my website. You drop your pictures into it and it reformats them to a smaller size. I find this super useful when I have my canva pictures. They can be quite heavy and when put through this app can be reduced by up to 20%! Quite a bit of saving if you are doing it to every photo you use on your posts.
Both these apps are used before you upload your pictures to your blog and can be used by all kinds of hoster’s.
Have you found picture editing tools that have helped you? I would love to hear of any more that are user-friendly!
