There's been so many times in the past where I've taken photos in poor lighting and just deleted them off of my camera. Because, why would I hold on to a bad picture, right? Well, that was then...before I knew anything about photo editing software. After teaching myself the basics of Photoshop (during my free 30 day trial), I was able to salvage some photos I had taken and enhance other ones...including some of my wedding photos! I wanted to share this information, because it's so easy!
There's a few popular software types that people often use- Picasa (free) & Photoshop (pricey). I just started using Picasa, because it's free and it's super easy to use. This is a before & after of a photo I edited in Picasa using the "tuning" options:
Pretty cool, huh? It's amazing how much difference there is in both pictures and the amount a picture can be enhanced. If I only knew then what I know now!
