In our last post, we took a tour through many of inkFrog's built-in image editing tools to see what each one of them does in isolation.

Now we'll use a few of these tools in combination to really fix up—and dress up—an image. We'll start with the same underwhelming product image that we began with last time:

What are the problems with this image? There are a few:

  • It's got a yellowish-greenish color cast

  • The colors that are there seem a bit muted

  • It's lacking drama somehow; it's a bit flat

Let's see if we can take an image like this one and use the inkFrog image editor to make it just a bit more appealing. Here we go!

Edit 1: Enhance (Color Fix)

We start by using the "Color Fix" option of the "Enhance" tool to remove some of the yellow-green cast from the image, so that it's in more neutral tones. When we're done, we click "Apply" to save our changes.

Edit 2: Brightness

Next, we use the "Brightness" tool to increase brightness across the image. In fact, the background is light enough to begin with that we can make it disappear altogether with a big enough increase in brightness. Again, once we're done with click "Apply" to save our changes.

Edit 3: Contrast

The previous version was reasonable, but it was lacking just a little bit of "oomph." With a subtle increase in contrast using the "Contrast" tool, we make the dark areas just a bit darker, almost imperceptibly adding a bit of depth to the image. Then, we click "Apply" to save our changes.

Edit 4: Saturation

Now we use the "Saturation" tool to bring out some of the duller colors, like the blue of the glitter and the red of the motorcycle, so that they look like the figurine does in real life. Once more we click "Apply" to save our changes.

Edit 5: Sharpness

By increasing sharpness with the "Sharpness" tool, we are able to really show off the fine detail, scales, and glitter in the figurine, so that shoppers can see just how intricate it is. We click "Apply" again to save our changes.

Edit 6: Text

We didn't feature the "Text" tool last time, but we'll use it here to add a little label, just for fun. The exclamation point tells shoppers that we really love this product. Again we click "Apply" to save our changes.

Edit 7: Frames

Finally, we use the "Frames" tool to add a dark frame with rounded corners around our image, almost putting it into a little scene of its own. When we're done, we click "Apply" one last time to save our image.

The Final Result

It may not be perfect, but the final result is a good deal more appealing than what we started out with—and it only took a few seconds in inkFrog's built-in image editor to make these changes.

So the next time you're disappointed in the product images you download from your camera, take a moment to see if you can enhance them in inkFrog—and save yourself a bundle of time!
