Photo editing using Picasa

If your work involves online publishing, one of the issues that will come is how to edit and optimize an image for the web. That’s where photo editing props up.

Adobe Photoshop and Google’s Picasa are some of the editing software you can use to tweak your photos.  Photoshop remains the favorite for many professional photo editors. I will get it. But today, I am using Picasa which comes free.

So see how I have used Picasa to edit a photo. The first picture is unedited while the second photo went under lightening and straightening for increased focus on the subject. I however compressed both photos for faster loading online.
