Photo Editing Tutorial
Grayscale is the process of taking color away from a photo. Use the slider to mute your photos and draw attention to shapes and angles in the photo so the colors do not get distracting. Exposure is the art of making your photos brighter or darker. Darker colors can add intrigue and mystery to your images while bright images can grab the viewers attention quickly.
Contrast in images make the bright parts brighter and the dark parts darker. This can help define lines and make them sharper to the eye. The saturation of an image is the intensity of the colors. If you want your images to pop, you can turn up the saturation.
The best way to get better at editing photos is to practice and experiment. Do not be scared of experimenting and find a look that works for your images. Not everey image will look good with the same editing so you will need to try different sliders to see what looks best. Try editing the same image with two completely different styles and see what you prefer. Photo editing is an art, not a science and most importantly, have fun!!
Sometimes you just want to edit a photo quickly and do not want to bother with complex programs like Adobe photoshop and Lightroom. The purpose of glympse is to let you edit and manipulate your photos on the web without the hassle of installing photo editing software on your pc or macbook. The main editing app is very simple to use. Upload your photos to a server and get the Url of the image and use that to pull the image into the editor. If you need to use a free upload service, you can use Dropbox or your own web server. The service is designed this way to save disk space.
