What do our experts say?
The Canvas Prints has its own website editor as it makes the photos eye catching and creates a bright and colorful aesthetic. Our experts say that usually it depends on the photo, but 80% of the time they will recommend clients to bring down brightness to around 50-100% of the original, especially if the images are of humans and animals. This allows the image especially the skin in particular to not look too washed out or chalky. Our experts say that the noise should be reduced, as it helps bring out the smoothness of the picture. However, they usually refrain from using the blur tool unless it is to airbrush skin for cosmetic purposes.
Our editors have also established that increasing the saturation really helps bring that real and life-like brightness into your photo. Make sure that there are no deep blacks in the photos as they take away all the attention from the pastel colours of the image. Be careful while editing, remember that the golden rule is to stop as soon as you see a little true black appearing in the photo.
If you are to use the Canvas Prints photo editor, just know that we have developed it in a way that keeps the images life-like and bright – so much so that you can step into them. Too many filters and highly brightened image editing is to be avoided at any cost. Pictures should look and feel enhanced, but not overly saturated or too sharp or too blurry. Editing should be done in a way that the image should seem perfect and not ‘edited’. If you wish to learn editing or aim for perfection at it, you need to practice with different filters and tools. Remember, you can not just get it right the first time so try making different edit versions of the same image until you are satisfied. Then put them side by side and decide which one looks the best. Using the before and after of images as a reference also helps put things into perspective while editing images.
