Are you a blogger or do you have an online business and only need to occasionally edit photos? Investing in fancy software like Photoshop isn’t for you but you still need options.
How about some options that are FREE? In this 3 part series I’m going to share with you different ways you can edit your photos for your website, blog or even just Facebook without spending a dime on fancy software. You don’t have to be a pro or have pro software to get the results that you need. Just what you were hoping to hear, right?
Here in Part I, we’ll start with an amazing FREE resource, Pixlr Express. Pixlr does require you have flash installed on your computer and it doesn’t even require that you register to use their site. Pixlr Express is a BASIC editing tool, you’ll be able to use it to crop an image, adjust color, add a frame/effect and text.
I’ll show you just how EASY it is for you to edit photos for your blog in this video:
Quick and painless right? I told ya! Don’t be intimidated because you don’t have fancy software.
If you’re looking for something more in-depth with photo editing and the ability to add multiple layers together, perhaps you want to take a shot at making a new header for your website or a banner for advertising? You wont want to miss next week.
P.S. Sorry for those of you who may have been watching for this to post on Monday — I had technical difficulties *cough, cough* my children wouldn’t let me record a video in peace *cough, cough*
P.S.S. I’ve made multiple video tutorials for clients but, this is the FIRST I’ve ever uploaded for YouTube… Next time I need to adjust my window size for sure, any other constructive criticism?
