Smartphone Image Editing

When you google Smartphone Image Editing, you get so many results. Each one will have information, some will evidently be better than others. 

The reason for me writing this blog is three-fold,

1: To show you some real-world image editing results completed with only a smartphone.

2: A list of resources and groups to see what your peers are doing with regards to smartphone image processing.

3: To make you aware of my new book Smartphone Smart Marketing and why as someone who is interested in improving their images, you need to look at the whole process to make your images better. 


1: Real-World smartphone edited images.

These images were edited in @Snapseed . However, now that Adobe Photoshop and Affinity Photo are available for the Ipad. Snapseed is no longer the most powerful mobile image editing app. However, it is extremely powerful and only limited by your imagination and technical abilities. ie put the time in and the world of smartphone photo manipulation and image editing is yours.

3: Image editing and beyond.

My book Smartphone Smart Marketing shows you how to plan, capture, edit, distribute and track your creations. Why is this important for better image editing? Image editing is one of the last steps in the process. Learning about photographic techniques and planning your image will give you a better image to manipulate in the edit. A better image to edit will produce a far superior finished product more able to wowing yourself and your viewers. But planning capturing and editing an image is not the end of the images journey. Getting out there and using that image to market or inspire is another skill.

My book covers everything from marketing to social media, photography to photo editing, video production to live streams. If you love editing images, you’ll probably love editing video and other creative content. My book pushes the boundaries of what is possible on today’s mobile phones. Grab a copy of Smartphone Smart Marketing and expand your horizons.

For photography, the book covers all aspects of the phones camera controls (white balance, exposure, shutter speed, aperture, AI, scene modes, auto modes, depth of field, portrait modes etc), as well as understanding the rules of composition and framing. It then moves into understanding all the editing terminology (crop, rotate, dodge, burn, noise, black and white etc). It looks at the best apps and more.
