How To Enhance Your Everyday Photos without Complicated Editing Programs

I love photography, but that doesn’t mean that every photograph I take is perfect. Sometimes I’m just a mom who will snap a quick pic in the moment and hope that it comes out alright. Most of the time I don’t do heavy editing on these kinds of photos because there are so many. When I am outdoors with my kids and snapping away, I want to have these memories preserved but I also don’t want to spend a ton of time editing them.

When it comes to editing my everyday photos I want simple with the least amount of clicks as possible. 🙂 I love using BeFunky photo enhancer for these kinds of everyday photos.  BeFunky developed this tool so that anybody can get creative with their photos without having to use complicated editing programs. The program has many different options when it comes to editing your images, like Exposure and Crop, but then it goes a step further and has these sort of presets that let you adjust the image in just one-click.

The 4 effects in the Enhance DLX library let you edit an image in seconds. You can easily fix four of the most common photography problems like exposure, sharpening, dullness and grain or noise. You can also add layers of edits on top of each other and also adjust the intensity of each.

Here is a photo I took with my phone of my daughter standing near a pond with her friend. You can see the shot came out kind of dull and not as sharp. The second photo shows the photo enhanced using the Vibrant Colors DLX and Sharpen DLX. I also used a little of the HDR effect to brighten up the glare on the water.

This second shot was more of the same. It came out dull and not as detailed, so I used the same options as the first, adjusting the opacity and intensity as needed. Here I used Vibrant Colors DLX, Sharpen DLX and a little HDR effect.

This last shot was one of my favorites to enhance because the colors were already there, except that when I used Vibrant Colors, the sky and the greenery popped even more. It was such a gorgeous day this day too and it definitely shows in the photo.

I take a lot of photos of my family with my camera and these candid images are the ones I mostly preserve in print, some even make it to my wall in a frame. With that said, I will never print out an un-edited photo, I guess that’s just the photographer in me. 🙂 BeFunky Enhance DLX photo enhancer is one of the easiest programs out there to make your images print worthy and beautiful.

You can preview any effect on your photo for free here, but to use the Enhance DLX effect you will need to sign up for a BeFunky Plus account at $4.95/month or $2.91/month for an annual account.
