PL PART 3: Editing Photos a Video Tutorial

Happy Thursday to you! Yes you! You know you're my favorite. Are we having a good week so far? I sure hope so! And just think it's almost the weekend...AGAIN! So work hard and keep looking up! What do you have planned for the weekend?

I just wanted to pop back in for another quick tip for getting started with digital Project Life. The main concept of PL or scrapbooking in general are the photos. The pictures of our loved ones that drive us to create everlasting memories of fleeting moments. Seconds caught on film can last forever when archived the right way. I just wanted to explain a bit about how I enhance those moments so that their true beauty can be looked at and remembered by all. :)

Editing photos for your digital layouts {or for printing} can be a little tricky but so worth it and almost necessary to achieve good quality spreads and great memories captured. My photos are usually taken my one of two devices, my Canon camera or my Iphone. Granted my Canon takes better quality photos but my Iphone has really surprised me on more than one occassion. More often that not I find myself in need of a camera and don't have my Canon with me so I resort to my Iphone, so needless to say a lot of my photos that are added to my PL layouts are taken with my Iphone.

So how do I go from an ordinary Iphoto to a printable image with great color and quality? I resort back to my handy dandy Photoshop. Now if you don't have Photoshop I have linked several online photo editing software sites.

SIDE NOTE: Try to upload your images via a direct connection, ie. USB cord, or memory card. If you email them the resolution goes way down.  

Here is a video tutorial on how to edit your photos for your PL layouts. Enjoy!

I hope this video was helpful! It's a super easy way to better the quality of your photos and your layouts. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns! 

If you have any tips or tricks to share with us please comment! 

Happy scrappin' and GOOD LUCK!
