Blog Tips – Best Photo Editors


Hello my Beauties,

hope everyone is doing great, even if the weekend is already over. 

On this snowy tuesday, i’d like to talk to you about a topic, that is not quite beauty or fashion related, but it’s a big part of becoming a better beauty blogger – knowing how and where to edit your photos, to make your beauty items shine even brighter on your blog, than before.
Recently i got a few questions on this subject, so i decided to share with you the best places to find your answers.

We all have started somewhere and from my own experience i can tell you, that sometimes knowing who to ask for advice, is already half of the job!

So in this hopefully useful post i want to present to you three very talented blogger, who invested their time to write step by step tutorials and make their readers understand, what the best (online) photo editors are and how to use them.
Let’s all benefit from their knowledge. 

First i want you to meet Ellie, a Creative Digital Media Student from Dublin, Ireland, who know’s a lot about Photography, Website Design & Development (of all the HTML things i personally have no clue about). 
MissedesignAlong many other great posts, she wrote a tutorial on Free Alternatives to Photoshop, to show us the free easy way on how to make the most of our photos.
Ellie is a beauty blogger herself and knows how important it is to present a product in the best light possible.
Please visit her blog and read the whole post. I’m pretty sure you will find it very helpful.
Besides, if you have other questions on HTML, SEO, Blog buttons or anything about Website Design, you can also talk to Ellie on Twitter.
Tell her I sent you, she’s very nice!

My second pick for this post has definitely to be the amazing Kaye, a beauty, photography, DIY, creativity & tech geekery fan (as she call’s herself) from Australia. She also tested a handful of photo editors and wrote a two-part series on how to get more use of editing functions and tools.
beautifulkayekieWhat i especially like about this article is her 15 minute rule: “If you knew very little, what could you do in 15 minutes?!”
I think the fact, that we all want to know everything in a very short time period, this blog post is exactly what we need, my friends!
I found some very interesting points and i hope you will as well.

So here is Kaye’s Best Online Photo Editor post. Stop by and leave her a nice comment, as i definitely think this work needs recognition!!
This beauty blogger is also to be found on Twitter for more DIY, design and all things fabulous questions. 

Last but most definitely not least in this post is Donah, my Sweet Jelly Bean, who you probably have heard me raving about over and over again. But simply, because this beauty blogger is so versatile and is not only good in doing reviews on cool asian products (which i would love to try them ALL), but also makes very understandable step by step “beautify your blog” tutorials, which i find very helpful.
SweetJellyBeanIn this particular post Donah show’s us how to brand & watermark our own pictures by using the 
Pixlr Editor.
So basically we get a two in one tutorial here. How cool is that?!
Following that
tutorial will make you understand, how easy a photo editor can actually be and how you make your blog post look more professional and organized.
Visit Donah and connect with her on Twitter

The tips you will find in all the three blog posts, that i’ve mentioned should give any beginner an idea of how to work your pictures and maybe give everyone else a few new ideas of blog improvement.
Please let me know, if you find such collective post’s helpful and interesting for the future. 
Thanks for reading, and happy experimenting!

Until next time – stay beautiful.

  13. Well well well, look who’s here again? Not that I’m complaining hehe. Thanks for the feature hun! I must say, these collection is great and I’m beginning to love Pic Monkey as well – although sometimes I get frustrated because it won’t let me do what I want to do – so I would switch to Photoshop lol. Photo enhancement – Pic Monkey is amazing – photo manipulation – you can try Pixlr – it’s the easiest and fastest. 😉 (love reciprocated – hehe)

    • I will check Pixlr out – jhaven’t tried that one yet, but it looks quite easy. 😀

I am so flattered you thought of me! I’m really glad others found it useful, what would we do without photo editors?? lol. I agree with Donah, Picmonkey rocks! But I regress..

    You are honestly the sweetest and most devoted blogger I’ve met, thank you for all your kind words and support. For me and for everyone! xxx

    • I’m very happy to share useful information with my readers and fellow bloggers. You know we all benefit from that. 🙂 And your article was def worth sharing. :*
