What our Image Editors Do
Normally an image file is opened in an image editing application to change the file and/or improve it. The different types of work completed in image editors is too diverse to discuss in detail. However, the following important functions are considered basic minimum requirements for editing systems…
- Adjusting exposure, contrast and brightness,
- Adjusting colors, hues, tones, saturation and light levels
- File cropping (cutting the file to a different shape, smaller shot)
- Straighten image, insert text, preset shapes, draw lines, erase
- To cut, paste, insert, crop-out and ‘fit-to’ selected image parts
- Change color, samples, hues, tones shades, lighten and darken
- To change sizes/shapes etc. – brushes, pens, shapes, tools
- Resizing the file dimensions appropriated to the intended use
- Optimizing the file (remove unwanted data, reducing storage size
- Retouching the subject content of the image to remove dust spots, digital noise and other digital capture imperfections.
- Basic set of software effects and filters (blur, frost, noise, wind, sepia etc.)
SitePiper’s image editors also have the capability to create or remove components of the image. New components of the image can be artfully created using painting tools, eraser tools and drawing tools. It is also possible to artificially over-write parts of the image using sections of the image from elsewhere. This ‘cloning’ is to disguise features or wipe them out. The process is used to take out unwanted parts of the image and make it look like it was never there.
Image file editing, and what may be achieved, depends the effects you wish to apply to the post-production process. SitePiper uses the latest Adobe and other available tools, plug-ins and extensions for our editors to suit your specific needs. Call 828-216-5769 or email us now.
