I don't usually edit my pictures. What you see here is the way I took them with my camera. I am trying to become a better photographer and I don't want that to include editing them because I don't have the time nor the computer space to edit all the pictures I take. Plus I don't have photoshop or any other fancy kind of program (though photoshop is on my list of things I would like to have). However I do have iphoto. Iphoto is an excellent tool for organizing your pictures. I don't upload all my pictures in iphoto, just the ones I might use somewhere else on my computer or crop or want to make black and white or sepia, something of that nature. I knew that I could crop, reduce red eye, blur, and do some special effects in iphoto but the other day I found the adjust button. You can change the contrast, saturation, exposure, etc. with this feature (although this is kinda what I consider cheating editing of your photos).
So I had uploaded all my disney photos to iphoto and today I was playing around with the 'adjust' button. These are two of my favorite photos from the trip that I wish could be better. Here is what I came up with so far:
edited version (the ears look weird but at least you can see them now)
What do you think? Better or not? Should I just leave the pictures alone?
Do any of you edit your photos on a regular basis? Why or why not?
