How to edit photos on a smartphone

Saturday 9th July 2022 10am-2pm

£85 pp. 

8 people maximum.

Are you disappointed with your phone photographs when you compare them with other people's? Do they look a bit flat and lack a bit of punch? Perhaps the colours don't look right and nothing is quite how you wanted it to look. Whites are dull and blacks aren't, well, very black.

The answer is usually editing. Those images that you think look amazing will almost certainly have been skilfully edited to bring out the details and textures, tweak colours and adjust the contrast.

Are you someone who skips editing, perhaps because you don't have time or you don't know what needs doing or how to do it? I'll show you how to quickly and confidently make changes to your images that will make them more impactful. 

The main apps I use are Snapseed and Lightroom Mobile. Both are free although the paid version of Lightroom has more features.

I'll also show you other really useful apps for removing unwanted objects and performing other great edits.

You'll be able to follow along as I use the apps on a big screen and you'll be able to practise on your own images.

The venue:

The Lion Salt Works is a restored historic open-pan salt making site, in the village of Marston, close to Northwich. The workshop will take place in a large, bright classroom with full facilities. There is a cafe and plenty of car parking on site.

Included in the price of each course:

  • A digital copy of the course material.
  • A home made light lunch and refreshments.

Your tutor

Hi, I'm Jane and I'm a professional photographer and tutor. I've liked photography since I was a teenager but now I absolutely love it!

I enjoy editing as much as I do taking the photograph. It's great to get as much right when you take it as possible, but there are almost always tweaks that you can do to make the image have more impact or to give it a particular mood or style.
