Once the photos have been taken, it is time to edit them in Google Photos. Editing options include color filters, basic adjustments, and cropping.
Of course, other photo editing platforms do exist. Scroll down to the bottom and learn more about PicMonkey and Canva.
Use Light to make the image lighter or darker. This option includes exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, whites, blacks and vignette. With Color, change the photo's saturation, warmth, tint, skin tone and deep blue. Pop sharpens the image.
Images can be cropped with aspect ratio. This includes freehand cropping, squares, and pre-determined ratios. Images cannot be resized to a specific size such as 2.5 inches. However, the image can be rotated.
When cropping an image, keep in Rule of Thirds in mind.
