7 steps to edit phone photos easy and quick!

Heyyy guys! I’ve been gone for a while but now I’m back ☺💗💖💫

Today the subject is how to edit photos taken on the phone quickly in Photohop. Each photo requires a specific treatment, it is complicated to generalize … But this 7-step guide is super useful, and does it work in many cases?

This tutorial is not intended to be an advanced image treatment course! It’s just a quick guide to uploading your photos before posting to Instagram or your blog. All steps are super easy, requires no technique and can be done by beginners. Adjust the intensity of each tool according to your personal taste.

Here’s the step by step:

1. Open your pic

2. Straighten – If the photo is crooked, straighten, if you need to center it, or if it is very straight, untie it. It depends on your goal!

3 and 4. Light and contrast – Use the “Curves” tool to increase the illumination of the photo and to bring out more of the dark and light parts and make the photo more vivid. You can hold your hand here, see? It’s just to stir a little bit!

5. Temperature – I always recommend “cooling” the photo to give it a more professional look. But who likes it hotter, go ahead hehe! You just have to take it easy too. The idea is not to make the photo blue.

6. Details – Remove the dirt that interferes with the photo (as I did here with some dots on the floor and the darkest corner up there). The best PS tools for this are the Recovery Brush, the Stamp and the Smudge tool.

7. Sharpness – When everything is ready, it is worth giving a little bit of sharpness by going to Filter / Sharpen / Intelligent Application. I also like to put a little bit of noise to disguise the pixelated ones.

Try it out and let me know!
