Do you want property photographs edited just how you want them to be edited? If yes, then it is important for you to know the following real estate photography editing terms. Doing so will simplify communication between you and the professional service team you will hire for the editing purpose.
The brightest areas of a photo are called the “highlights”, the dark areas are the “shadows”, and midtones are the ones which fall in between both in terms of tones. The degree of dark tones and brightness can be seen through an editing program’s histogram, representing the distribution of the pixels of an image based on luminosity.
In layman terms, the histogram represents an image’s brightness level (bright, dark, and medium) along the graph’s bottom axis and the number of pixels at its specific level of brightness along its vertical axis. Histogram’s right side represents highlights, while the left one represents shadows. The more image pixels at a particular brightness value is, the higher will be the corresponding point in Histogram. A well-balanced photograph will not have gaps in this graphical representation, but it will show some pixels at all levels of brightness.
Even for professional photographers, it can be rather challenging to get perfectly exposed adobes and stunning imagery outside the windows of a house in the same photo. Masking fixes this issue.
Window masking enables real estate photographers to choose each layer and make alternations, without affecting other layers. Its point is to take snaps of the same real estate setting – the interior snap for a layer, and the corresponding snap but with a stunning window view for another layer.
A real estate photo editing professional can then cut out the interior snap’s window and replace the area with good window snap. With some cleaning up and real estate photo enhancement, you will have a beautiful image in quick turnaround time.
The term “noise” refers to a form of digital distortion, a variation of either color or brightness in photographs. It looks like small specks or pixels. Noisy images can look extremely grainy.
Many factors cause it, including high ISO settings, low light conditions, long exposures, and over-brightening in post-processing. Fortunately, it is possible to reduce or remove noise with proper image editing techniques.
Real estate image blending refers to a process which combines multiple versions of an image with an editing program. The ultimate objective of real estate image blending is to vastly improve the final output. It is often used to achieve better overall exposure, wider dynamic range, and a change of image perspective.
