Photo4everyone.com features several ways to sharpen photos, one of them would be to extract the edges and add it to the orignal image, another would be to use for example a lucis art filter, which kinds of sharpens the image, but also apply other effects to the image and finally the sharpen method developed by photo4everyone.com
How is sharpen done to your photos? The sharpen process consists of two main steps. First all the edges of the photo are computed using what is called a high-pass filter or edges filter. And now you will have an image where only the borders of the photo are displayed, where a white pixel means a high strenght edge and a black pixel means a low stenght edge. Actually if you want to see how an edges image looks like you can also try the edge photo effect. In the second step, the edge image is added to the original image with a simple sum. And that’s it you have a sharpen photo.
The sharpen photo effect is used mostly to beautify photos, because, just as we explained before, it enhances the details of a photo, most photo editors have one, sometimes is called by a different name, but basically this is what it does. In a photo editing process the sharpen effect can be use as a initial step and then some other effects are added to it.
However the sharpen effect is not only used to beautify pictures, it is also used to make blurry photos look clear. Let’s say you took a picture with a low quality camera, or you a trying to zoom an image but it looks pixelized, well you can apply a sharpen effect to improve it’s quality and in the second case you may want to increase the resolution before. Obviously you won’t get an effect like in the detective’s movies where they take a photo from a camera in a parking lot and sharpen it and suddenly they get the face of a person or a license plate, you can’t make any extra information appear out of nowhere. But still you can certainly make it look a little better with the sharpening effect.
The mirror effect is actually one of the simplest effects, nevertheless, it is useful to use a photo editor to achieve it due to various reasons. First of all, probably you were thinking, I could just copy the photo with paint, paste it at the bottom and that’s it, wrong! It may be simply, but, come on, it’s not that simple. Actually mirroring a photo isn’t very hard, but maybe you won’t get the same resulting image a photo editor online would get. That is because you may have not considered some other issues, like the distance you have to leave in between the images, the bottom image may not be an exact match of the upper one, it may have a water like effect, a blur, or just a reduction in illumination. Also you should be very careful in aligning them perfectly well, otherwise it’ll look weird, even if is by one pixel of misalignment.
So, it is actually not so easy to create a mirror effect as you can see. But don’t worry you don’t have to becuase www.photo4everyone.com already features one, just go to their effects selection and click on mirror effect, upload your photo and there you have it, a mirrored effect photo in just seconds, without going through all the trouble of matching photos horizontally or vertically.
What do we mean by photoshop a picture? After all there tons of things “photoshop” can mean, from ajusting illuminance and contrast in a picture, to completely edit it, adding new object to the original picture, removing some objects, creating cool effects. Well, in this tutorial what we are going to cover is how to add objects to the original picture. But for this we are not going to use precisely photoshop, we are going to use an alternative named www.photoshopeditoronline.com
Photoshop editor online is web based photo editor focused mainly in adding new objects to pictures in a seamless way. It’s main purpose it’s to keep it is easy and interactive. To photoshop your pictures the first step is obviously going to the website and click start editing in the home page. Then select the picture you want to photoshop and the picture that you are going to use as frame (also called background). For this example we are going to use a regular person (front) and some kind of chakra aura (background).
Then we are going to select the person using the selection tool provided by the website and click crop (it’s the “done” button). Afterwards we are goind to place the cropped area into it’s new position in the background photo, make some rotations and scaling to make it fit. Then click the “Finish” button. And select the mix option.
Actually if have read our past tutorials you may have noticed that this is the first time we use the mix option, so we are going to talk about it a little bit. The mix algorithm combines the details of both pictures, the front and backgound, but keeps the colors of the backgound, making it look natural, if you remember the difference with the overlay option is that the overlay kept the colors af the background as well, but removed the details of the background. The mix options can be useful en many cases, for example adding a tattoo, getting an aura, placing a skull in front of you, adding particles to pictures and more, without lossing the escence of the backgound picture.
So once we get the result, we should get something like this:
tada! We just photoshopped a picture in minutes using the mix option!
There are some times when you take a picture you really liked, but there’s something bothering you, maybe an object in the background. So you are thinking how can I remove an object in photoshop?
You can achieve this by using photoshopeditoronline.com, we’ll explain the process now:
First go to photoshopeditoronline.com,upload a blank picture as the front and select the picture where you want to remove the object as the background. Then select any part of the blank image with the shape of the object you want to remove and click crop.
Then drag the cropped blank image to the object you want to remove. Say you want to remove a doll from a drawer or a shelf in your bedroom.
We are going to remove one of the figurines from the middle. So we drag the mask over it.
Then we click done and select the overlay option, this way the blank mask will be take the color of the contour but removing the figurine.
Fotoshop has become such a great tool for editing your pictures, and there are some online versions that work fairly well. Fotoshop is a tool that provides you with a ton of tools to edit your pictures practically in any way you want, it’s amazing what some people achieve by using this tool, it’s almost an art. However, it is somewhat hard to use and even more if you are an inexperienced user.
Having that in mind, a fotoshop online has been created. This app allows you to select a chunk of a photo, then cut it and paste it into another photo, but just like it was made using a professional editor, this is due to algorithm that powers it from backscene.
With online fotoshop you can create impressive photos by adding or removing elements or objects from your pictures. It features two modalities, the overlay and the mix options. Both have their advantages, whether you choose one or another will depend on the effect you want to create. If you want to fotoshop an object in a scene, but removing what is behind that object you should use the overlay option. If you want to add an object to a scene but keeping the scene intact, the you can use the mix option.
Photoshop is simply just a beautiful, powerful tool for photo editing, but many times you may not have access to it, mainly due to it’s price. So we made a quick search over the internet to find the closest alternative to photoshop and we found some fairly good editors.
First of all we have pixlr, which basically features and interface almost identical to the real photoshop, it has the same tools and essence. The only turn down is that it is a little bit slow, since the changes you make must be performed in the server side and then sent back to you. Also it is not the same to work in a web browser than in a desktop application, to mention one reason, you have less space.
Another alternative is photoshop editor online, which presents a change of perspective, it doesn’t features the same tools or interface as photoshop, but it is used for the same purpose. You can achieve the same results as photoshop but with less effort and in a more interactive way, you do it by only telling that website what you want it to do, but not how to do it, and website deals with the how.
And basically that’s all there is. Of course there are plenty other websites with the word photoshop on it’s name, but they are nothing but cheap copies of pixlr, no don’t bother in trying them.
Merging photos is a process which can be done by means of image processing, but as you may imagine, most of us are not image processing specialists, so there must be an easier way to merge photos. And in fact there is, imageeditoronline.net has added a photo merger as one of it’s free tools with more than 20 different ways of merging photos.
The photo merger they created is very easy to use, you only have to upload a photo, then the effects specific parameters will show over the photo (in the upper side) where you’ll have another image form, there you’ll upload the second photo, it does not matter much in which order you upload them. Beneath the second photo form, you’ll have a selection box with the default value of “color dodge”, in this selection box you can select the merging method you want. Everyone of the merging methods will give you different results, they’re all great, but which one you choose will depend on what kind of merging you have in mind. Sometimes you may want to use the “add” method, some other times the “soft light” or the “threshold”.
As a example, we are going to merge a photo of two persons watching the sky, with a beautiful sky taken from fiction:
Fotoshop is a software created to edit photographs in any imaginable way, fotoshop was developed a while ago by adobe an has been growing ever since, it has a huge active community and constant updates. It features many tools that allow the user to make changes from just a single pixel to the whole global image.
Fotoshop has increased in complexity as well and has become a tool for an above average user, it requieres some expertise, maybe a introduction course, some video tutorials online, take a class and all the way to the designers with a bachellor’s degree. Fotoshop has far exceded it’s competence in widespread use.
Some other photo edition software exist in the world, some even more professional or targeted to a more specific niche, but none of them is as famous as fotoshop.
As it’s to be expected, fotoshop is not free, you need to purchase a one time license and it’s updates. Some online versions have appeared like fotoshop online which allows you to do some similar things, like taking things (parts, objects) from an image and placing them into another image. But it’s interface isn’t identical to fotoshop, only the concept. Some other editors more similar to the original have appeared as well like pixlr, so depending on how familiarized you are with the software you may want to choose between one of those.
One of the not so common effects you can apply to your photos is the threshold effect. This effect works the following way:
In the photo threshold effect all the pixels with color values lower than a defined threshold (which you define) will be changed to another defined color (which you define as well) creating an interesting effect. Commonly all the pixels that satisfy this condition usually are gather in the same place or belong to the same region, even this region is not closed, this way what will happen is that some of the homogeneous regions in the image will be switched to the color of your selection.
Photoshop is a tool that has gain widespread acceptance, it is loved by people everywhere around the world and even teached at some unniversities. But photoshop has been around for a while now, it’s time to start thinking what’s next.
Well, we’ve seen some replicas of photoshop online since a while but recently we faced with one pretty unique, and that particularly we loved. It is www.photoshopeditoronline.com
So what’s so special about it? It takes the concept of photoshop, meaning that you can create photos that obviusly are not real but make them look real.
So what’s the difference with photoshop then? It’s extremely easy to use (and free).
And isn’t that the tendency. Soon we should all be able to perform amazingly hard task with as little effort as possible. And photoshop editor online accomplish this task fairly well.
It’s use mode is incredibly easy and self-undestandable. You don’t even need intructions to know what the next step is, and what you have to do. It has only one or two buttons, so there’s no way you can get lost, and the algorithms underneath it are incredibly powerful.
Photoshopping photos appears to be taking a turn around with this new concept. So stick to see how it goes, we’ll check on the evolution on this innovative website to see what’s the course of photography editing.
