Editing the picture A next step is editing the picture, so that it can be uploaded to, for example, the forum. We will focus in particular on editing the composition by 'cropping' , and saving the picture as a JPEG file. We can also improve the quality of the picture by changing the brightness and contrast. This process will be discussed for different types of commonly used software. When we edit the picture, we perform three steps: 1. croping: cutting the irrelevant parts or edges of the picture away. 2. resizing: it used to be necessary before you could upload a picture to the forum, but nowadays this is done automatically when you upload the picture to the server. 3. Compressing the picture by saving it as a JPEG file. These three steps are discussed in detail for the most commonly used software (Adobe Photoshop, Irfanview and Microsoft Photo Editor). Photoshop earns my (personal) preference, because it offers more options (note that I am not sponsored by Adobe®). Irfanview, however, is completely free. Note: A newer Adobe software called Photoshop Elements offers the same capabilities discussed here and also organizes your photos too. Adobe Photoshop Photoshop is a standard in the computer graphics sector; it offers very extensive options for editing a picture. The software is quite expensive, and the changes we need to make are quite simple, so don't panic if you don't have Photoshop, there is plenty of free software (like Irfanview, see below) that can provide us with the same results.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
