Retouching Real Estate Photos

Retouching an real estate photo in Photoshop can help you to take a printout of the same for a brochure or to upload it to a real estate gallery in the best possible quality. Professional photo editors keep a copy of the photo and upload it in Photoshop to make subtle edits in a post-processing workflow. Yet prior to printing an image for a home décor brochure, for instance, there are several factors to take note off in real estate retouching.

Color Profile Management

It is important to have a separate color profile for photos meant for web upload to one that is chosen for printing on a photo quality paper. Adobe Photoshop lets editors match the printing colors simply by accessing some of the customized color profiles in the software. Photoshop also lets take control of a range of colors with color management. The option helps editors to set a color profile or choose CMYK inks for a photo, similar to a color palette of a painting, in the color separation process.

Changing the image size in retouching is one of way tweaking the image data format and the corresponding file size. It can be done by either scaling up or lessening the pixel count on an image uploaded in Photoshop. Once resampling is completed, it may mean the number of pixels is either added or lessened from an original photo. Editors indulged in real estate photo editing tend to specify the interpolation method in the dialog box of image size selection. It assigns color values, such as shades and tints, to newer image pixels as per the present color values. Specifying the interpolation method type in Photoshop can help improve the quality of the photo.

The Image Type

The image can be retouched in either CMYK or RGB color mode. The format that is ideally preferred for the desktop printers is CMYK. Note that the desktop printers use an inbuilt software program that recognizes RGB data, thereby converting the data to CMYK. Yet again, when working on a photo in RGB instead, it is best to avoid converting it.

Another option to consider while retouching photos with line arts is that it necessitates single color levels. Being said that, intricate real estate photos with various color tones require more print options in Photoshop to get the layout orientation.
