So you’ve decided you want to blog, but you’re stuck on what to do for all the cool images that you’re SURE you’ll need. You’ve looked at posts like mine which share great places to get stock photos, or you have a great camera to take your own images, but what now?
Now, you learn about the joys of wishing you had Photoshop. No, really. Between Adobe Photoshop Elements, Photoshop Premiere Elements, and Adobe Lightroom, there are very few photography issues which can’t be resolved. (This assumes, of course, that you’ve dedicated sufficient time and energy to learning the software.)
For those of us who either don’t have the time and energy to commit to learning how to use these sophisticated programs or don’t want to invest that kind of money into something that isn’t turning a profit, or that they haven’t tried before – have no fear! There are many low cost and (my favorite price) free alternatives to things like Adobe Photoshop and Corel Paint Shop Pro, and surviving without Photoshop is 100% possible.
I’ll be writing posts about my favorite Photoshop alternatives in the coming weeks, as well as tutorials about how you can best utilize these tools and apps which make photo editing easy. (No one wants to let their pics hit the net before they’re ready.) I promise that not having Photoshop doesn’t mean that you can’t blog, or that you won’t be able to create some fantastic images like the ones you’ve seen on other blogs and sites like Pinterest.
I know there are a myriad of iOS programs as well. If I cover your device and miss your favorite photo editing tool, let me know! I’d love to let my readers know about it.
