Do you love editing your photos and playing with different looks but you think Adobe Photoshop is too complicated to use, Lightroom is too expensive, and all other free online software are too boring? Well, there’s something for you out there that’s not complicated at all and not expensive as Lighroom. Also, not everyone is using it. The other day I came across an unknown (to me) photo editor online that offers great diversity. It’s called Smart Photo Editor and it has tons of presets! When I say tons, I mean 1113 presets (and growing) that are also adjustable individually.
I played a bit with it and I will show you some of the presets I liked. Since I used trial, I wasn’t able to save edited photos so I only have screenshots to share with you. No, I haven’t checked out every single preset but you can if you’d like. The software is really easy to use; it is idiot-proofed as one of my professors used to say. The current price is around 18 Euros ($25) so that’s really not that bad. Most Adobe Photoshop or Lighroom actions cost more than that.
It’s Presidents Day today so we had a three-day weekend and my husband and I used it for a getaway to the west coast; Italian of course. We visited a few places in regions of Liguria and Tuscany and that’s why I will use a photo of Cinque Terre to show you how easy it is to use the Smart Photo Editor.
Preset pages are listed as thumbnails at the top of screen, on the right side in the Effect Gallery and in a sort of theme-grouped effect menu on the left. Each effect (preset) also allows you to change values (controls) to get the exact effect you want.
Neat thing about this software is that it shows you the preset name as well as the author. You can click on the link to get more info about both.
You can edit the entire photo or select a part of it to edit it by using selection tools.
When selecting an area to work on, there a few preset selection tools to help you…
Now, here are some of the effects/ presets I like…
Have you used Smart Photo Edit? If yes, do you like it?
