An Interactive Guide to Photo Editing

Instagram will have you believe that anyone can be a photo editing expert by just applying a filter and cropping your image into a square. But my Abbie Morrison, a professional photographer, will remind me that being able to use Instagram and being a good photo editor are not the same things. A good photographer and photo editor will take advantage of more than just a few default filters in a photo editing tool. To help people understand photo editing terminology and functions, Polarr has published an interactive guide to photo editing terminology. The guide defines twenty-four terms and provides visual examples of each in practice.

Applications for Education
Polarr’s guide to photo editing terminology could be a good resource for students who are in introductory photography classes. It’s also a good resource for students who simply want to create better pictures to use in slide presentations and other multimedia projects.
