Image blog WebSelf

With the Webself photo editor, you have everything you need to turn ordinary photos into professional-looking ones. From cropping, to correcting the color, adjusting the sharpness of the image, everything is there. This editor, powered and developed by Aviary, will certainly help you bring your images to the next level.

Before you start, make sure you have the rights to use that image on your website. In fact,  it’s not because you can find a picture on Google images that you have the “right” to use it. (If you are looking for free resources, here are some.) Start with a good-quality photo; the WebSelf tool is very powerful, but it isn’t miraculous. To open the photo editor, drag and drop your photo into a zone then right-click on it. Select "Edit Image" for the photo editor to appear. Use the "Cropping" tool to crop your image if necessary. Once this is done, you are ready to start!

Adjust light and color

First, some of the most significant adjustments for your image are the brightness and color. The "Enhance" tool is specially designed to make that task as simple as possible. Only a few clicks allow you to illuminate and change the colors of your image. In the editor, you have three options: "High Definition,” to improve clarity, "Illuminate,” to increase brightness, and "Color Fix,” to adjust colors. You can combine and/or modify the effects until you are satisfied, and then save your photo to return to the WebSelf photo editor, and continue your modifications.
