Most photographers know that it is quite advantageous to process photos. In fact, for them, it's a piece of cake. Do you want to edit your photos, but have no idea why you should do so? Don't panic! Find out in this article why you should edit your photos.

Getting as close to reality as possible

As you may have already noticed, not all cameras, even the most powerful ones, manage to get close to reality. Otherwise, they completely or partially distort the content. 

For example, take a picture in a certain frame and then compare them. You will see with your eyes that the image source is quite different from what your camera displays. Processing the photos would allow you to bring the photos back to the normal state they should be in.

To make this easier, you could choose to use High Dynamic Range. You will then have three different renderings for each shot that you merge together to get a dynamic image.

Getting a better look

There have been situations where photos are destroyed or deleted for various reasons. Maybe because they were out of sync, a bit crazy, dark, etc. Yet, they could have been saved and in some cases, could have been better than the other shots.

Image editing is the solution to this kind of situation. You can then cut, crop, adjust the light level, contrast, etc. In addition, at the end of the editing process, you may realise how original your work and your photos are.

Creativity

Some people think that photo editing is a source of lies and poor rendering. However, these same images could have a completely different purpose. It can be used to get a message across, to get people to do something. It is art.

You could reveal your artistic talents by reshaping a photo. Add or remove details. Let other people follow your lead, to experience what you want.
