How to Enhance a Photo Like a Pro

Jul 2, 2021 · 4 minutes read

In this day and age, photo enhancement isn’t just for celebrities and social media influencers! Instead, it’s a routine practice that even amateur photographers don’t shy away from. The most simple photo-enhancing steps can take your creation from a good picture to a great portrait. In this article, we’ll talk about some photo-enhancing tools within the YouCam Perfect app that will help you take your photos to the next level.

Why Enhance Your Photos?

Nowadays, it’s rare to see photos on social media without even minor adjustments. Whether it’s a simple photo filter or more advanced editing, nearly everything we see in our feed has been retouched in one way or another, and for good reason. Why should we accept a mediocre picture when you can make your photos look nearly perfect with just a few taps? Historically, this has been hard to manage. With photo editing software being expensive, confusing, and only available on a desktop computer, there was a big barrier to overcome if you wanted to add some after-effects to enhance your pictures. 

Fast forward to today, there are plenty of tools available for you to use — and they don’t have to be expensive! Introducing the YouCam Perfect app: your go-to free photo editing app that lets you enhance a photo quickly and easily. The YouCam Perfect app has a very useful “Auto Adjustment” feature that makes photo editing and tweaking easier than ever, even if you’ve never used it before. Next, we’ll discuss a few examples of what you can do with the YouCam Perfect app and its easy-to-use enhancer tools.

#1. Crop & Adjust Perspective

So you took a nearly perfect photo, but the horizon looks a bit crooked? Or perhaps you want to make the objects in your photo look more symmetrical? Use YouCam Perfect’s “Perspective” tool to crop and adjust the perspective of your image to your heart’s content! There are three options to choose from with this enhancer tool — Vertical, Horizontal, and Rotate. Simply tap the option you’d like to use to enhance your photo, and drag the slider from left to right to employ the altered perspective until you reach your desired look. You can also easily crop your photos to achieve the perfect size & ratio, whether you are looking for a 1:1 ratio, the social media 2:3, or any other standard crop ratio. You can even crop your photo without a set ratio to frame the image exactly the way you want it to. Try it now!
