Photography Tips | Make images appear sharper & clearer in few seconds
I get a lot of questions about my blog photography… I have gained some knowledge in my two years of blogging and I should admit, the quickest, easiest tips and tricks are my favourite. So here is one Photoshop tip that will instantly make your images appear sharper and clearer in just few seconds.
We all know that the size of a image taken with DLSR camera is huge and it needs to be compressed to the correct pixel dimensions (it all depends on your template’s width as well). There are many plugins out there which automatically optimize your images to help your blog’s better performance. However I prefer to do it manually.Photography Tip | How to improve the quality of your blog images in seconds.Click To Tweet
Two simple steps for professional looking photos
After I edit and compress my images, I like to make them appear sharper and clearer. This Photoshop tip completely changes the way they look. Within few seconds they appear a lot more professional and eye catchy.
- First you need to upload your image on Photoshop and compress it to desired pixel dimensions (if you need to keep the image to its original size, than you need to skip this step)
Go to Image → Image Size → Type the desired pixel dimensions in the space above
After you have changed the image pixels, the picture will appear a lot smaller on the screen. This is completely normal as the size of the image has been reduced.
- Now you need to sharpen your image and improve its quality
Go to Filter → Sharpen → Click on Unsharpen Mask filter
I usually leave the Radius and the Treshold on the levels shown above. You can play around with the Amount though. I leave mine on 65% as higher I go as more unrealistic the image starts to appear.
Click OK and than you are done!
This is one of the quickest and easiest tips I have learned and it really helps me to improve my blog photography.
