  • 1. Photo Editing
    Written by- Nolan Williamson
  • 2. Programs
    There are a ton of programs for photo editing out there, each with prices ranging from $0 to $10 to $700 and on.
    This guide is designed for high school students, so all of the programs that are discussed here are free!
  • 3. Picasa®
    One of the best programs available for organizing, simple editing, and viewing is Picasa®,which is made by Google.
  • 4. Picasa®
    Other than a great organizational tool, Picasa® can be used to fix photos with improper exposure, do simple editing, and add some effects to your photos. The two slides show a before and after of a photo edited in this program.
    The story: I was outside playing basketball when I saw some interesting light on a tree behind the goal. I got my camera, took the picture and continued to play basketball until the light was gone. When I got inside and uploaded the photos, I found that the photos were composed just fine, but the exposure was off by several stops of light! Picasa® came to the rescue and saved my photos with just a few clicks!

  • 7. Picasa®
    Just by clicking the “I’m Feeling lucky” button in the editing menu, Picasa® changed the lighting, colors, and saturation in less than a second! There are also manual options for editing light, saturation, tint, and tons of other features. There is also a built in version of “picnic”, a popular, basic, user friendly online editing and manipulation tool.
    You can download this program by clicking on one of these links

  • 8. Gimp
    Gimp is a program modeled after Adobe® Photoshop, and is designed for heavy photo editing, manipulation, and effects. This program is not as user friendly as Picasa, but it gets a lot more work done, has thousands more features, and although it is a bit hard to use at first, with a little practice and time, you can create some beautiful work with this program.
    The next slide is some examples of just a few things that can be done with Gimp.
