How to edit your children's photos?

Last Updated :

You barely notice camera settings while clicking pictures of your kids, right? It so happens because your focus is more on what the kids are doing and how to capture it best, which is a very dynamic state to shoot in.

Unlike professional photographers, mothers or fathers usually rely on simple digital cameras or smart phones to click their children’s photos. The picture might look great to you, but it could still have occasional issues with lighting, white balance, red-eye and more, though, so it's a good idea to keep a photo editor around to help resolve them.

Here are some tips on the basic fixes you can use while editing your child’s photos.

  • Get a good photo editing software. You can download some great software like Corel Paintshop, Adobe Photoshop Elements and Serif Photoplus. If you don’t want to spend money on an editing software, then don’t worry, there are some amazing free softwares too, like Photoscape, Picasa, Gimp and PhoXo.

  • The first thing your must do when you start editing your photos of your children you shot with a digital camera or a smartphone, is to crop it properly to remove unwanted items in the frame. Always set the resolution to 240 pixels which will give you a detailed image.

  • Remove distractions like a piece of paper on the floor or too many wires in the background, by using a Clone Stamp tool which will remove these things and can even out that space.

  • Apply basic fixes, like red-eye reduction, Spot Healing brush to remove any blemishes or scars et al. Check the photo’s white balance also if your camera was not on Auto mode.

  • You can either warm up the entire photo, which increases yellow overtones in it to look more sunny and bright, or you can reduce the temperature of the photo to increase blue tones, which will make it look dull.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
