Now, follow the below photo editing tricks to achieve photos of professional quality.
Crop the Image
Cropping is one of the basic steps in post photo processing. This will create a dramatic change in your photo. For this, choose the crop tool from the menu and position the box on your image keeping the focal point in mind, and remove the unwanted areas.
Try a Healing Brush
In most cases, the images that you shot with drone cameras may contain many unwanted things that can ruin the overall look. Fear not, there are some brilliant editing hacks to tackle this problem. For this, enlarge the image and identify all the defects in it. Now, using the healing brush tool, tap on all the blemishes on your photo and remove the defects efficiently.
Balance the Levels
This is one of the crucial steps in developing a masterpiece image. It is necessary to balance the contrast level in the image in order to catch the attention of a spectator. For this, select the histogram tab from the settings.
You can see light colors on the left side of the histogram, and dark colors will be on the right side. Choose these colors in order to brighten the highlights, and darken the shadows in your image. Manipulate the contrast levels until you achieve perfect harmony.
If your photos have some intense colors, they may look extra vibrant. To balance this, go to the color saturation settings and play with the slide bars over there. Take care not to overdo it, as there are chances for the image to resemble a photo from the 80’s.
Sharpen the Image
To raise the look of your masterpiece, highlight its edges using the sharpening tool. This will add a subtle contrast to your images. Take care to use the tool sparingly or until you find it perfect with your naked eyes. Otherwise, it will look unreal or dramatic.
