Within my first article within this series, Taking photos of Qualities available, I talked about what we should photograph if we are planning to list out a property available. Within this second article, I’ll discuss the process we follow to help make the photographs look their finest. Whenever we return from shooting the pictures of the property that we’re going to list around the Mls, we first download the pictures from your camera to some folder on the computer. Then we open our photo-editing software, and import individuals photographs into the program. (To locate a photo-editing program, visit Google, and kind in “photo editing software”. Google offers an excellent free program known as Picasa.)
Inside the photo-editing program, we might perform a quantity of things to ensure that our photographs present the home within the best light [pun intended]. We may straighten, crop, lighten, darken, or brighten the pictures, to ensure that the pictures show the home the way you really first viewed it. We’re “fixing” the pictures because we might not have had proper lighting, or we didn’t contain the camera straight, or we didn’t remember to make use of the expensive, etc.
From time to time we’ll retouch the photograph to cover an unsightly item that people didn’t remember to maneuver before we required the photograph. We never retouch an image to cover something that’s permanently there, like a energy line or telephone pole, because that might be dishonest. But when we didn’t remember to get rid of that red-colored rubber ball or that ugly garbage can before we required the photograph, we’ll now attempt to retouch it from the photograph. From your experience, retouching is tough to complete since the picture frequently looks worse using the “offensive” item retouched from the photograph, than when that item was at the photograph. So, we frequently forgo retouching, and merely curse ourselves because of not getting observed that offensive item before we required the photograph.
We don’t edit every photograph that people required, just individuals that people might opt for. After we have completely finished editing, than we export the edited photographs to a different folder. At this time, we select the photographs that we’ll placed on our Mls, we website, as well as on the slide show or property website that we’ll setup due to this property. We’re now available our edited photographs to organize an online tour, however i covers that procedure within my next article.
