Truth be told, you could be the best photographer around and your images straight off the memory card may still look dull. To maximise appeal, you need to enhance those pixels in post-production.
Do these edits on your to get those enquiries flooding in, and improve your chances of getting higher offers and selling in less time. And before you think ‘I don’t have a clue how to do any of this stuff’, relax, we can do these essential Photoshop edits all for you if you like 🙂
1. Blue sky edit
Top of the list, this is an absolute must if you want your most important external shots to stand out, grab attention and instantly create a great first impression. Come rain or shine, a blue sky with a few fluffy clouds peppered in will ensure your outside shots are packed with all the appeal of a bright summer day.
2. Object removal
Cars, mess, clutter, clothes, family pictures, sun flairs, skips, scaffolding, pets, competitors boards, the list goes on! All are no match for the Photoshop clone tool and some digital wizardry. This edit will keep your shots clean and clear of anything that will negatively impact their appeal.
3. Colour boost
Us humans are wired to be attracted to bright, shiny things. Boost colours to amplify the wow factor, bring the pixels to life and stand out online. Use selective colour change to transform dull, flat images into beautiful, vibrant marketing shots.
4. Shadow lift
Lifting shadows is an essential edit for ensuring your shots are bright, striking and captivating. We isolate dark pixels and enhance their luminosity levels until they dazzle!
5. Clarity sharpen
Sharpening clarity helps to counteract any blur that may be present in the shot. We keep lines and pixels crisp by sharpening your images when exporting them from Lightroom.
