When I first began blogging, I assumed I had to have the best of everything. The best camera, the best photo backgrounds, the best lighting contraptions, and the best photo and video editing software. I quickly learned that none of the best can do your photos justice if you have no idea how to use them. This was especially true with my photo editing.
I’m sad to say, on the left is one of my first photos ever featured on my site. Besides being a horrific attempt at cake balls, it’s a poorly executed photo with massive lighting problems that I tried to cover with an even more horrific dark vignette. Yikes.
My photos have definitely improved over the years, partly due to experience, but mostly because I went from basic online editing programs to Adobe Photoshop Elements.
Adobe Photoshop is too hard
I actually started with Adobe Photoshop and yes, it was difficult. I didn’t take the time to learn it and honestly, it’s a program for graphic designers and professionals.
Adobe Photoshop Elements is all about simplicity and sharing with both your photos & videos. It’s best for the casual picture taker or those just getting started who want an easy way to organize, edit, and share their photos and videos. It’s also perfect for those who aren’t professional photographers but want to take their photo editing to the next level, such as bloggers – like me!
Adobe Photoshop Elements 14 helps you transform your photos & videos into easy to share memories. Make quick edits, add artistic touches and cool effects like a pro or transform your photos and videos to wow friends and family.
I love using Adobe Photoshop Elements 14 because I can edit my photos while I travel, so I don’t have to be connected to Wi-Fi like I do with online editing software. I don’t have to pay for fancier options if I want them because they’re already in the program. And I can create and share photos and movies on Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo and more. I can even view them 4K and HDTVs.
Adobe Photoshop Elements 14 also helps keep my videos and photos organized, which is a huge time saver if I’m working on multiple posts, campaigns, or editing photos of my family.
