What is image editing?

We’re glad you asked.

Today, everyone is editing images.

Image editing is every action that changes the original appearance of your picture. You can use the editing software to manipulate elements on your image and include annotations, markups, borders, signatures, pointers, drawings, and text. Individual editors are complicated, expensive, and bulky. While others are free, entirely online, and offer smooth sailing with targeted tools for your specific goals.

The difference is apparent in the case of Adobe Photoshop v. Good Annotations. Suppose you’re looking for effective markup communication with your client and easy image sharing. In that case, Photoshop is out of the question. Good Annotations has all the right tools that will make your job easy.

Conversely, you shouldn’t edit New York Fashion Week editorials and prepare them for print magazines with easy online tools. In this case, industry professionals pay for specialized tools and employ a narrow skillset to make the models look good in all formats — from jumbo posters to Facebook ads.

Imagine editing makes for all of the above, and much more.

Why edit Images?

Photo editors will help you add, erase, or change elements on your images.

But why would you ever need to change your images? People communicate with words and pictures on the internet. Sometimes you’re building an art installation. Other times you’re creating a meme for your Facebook page.

But both times, you’re editing images.

You can edit your photos to tell your story in your words, crack a joke for all the internet to laugh at, and create blog covers. Maybe you’re looking to create excellent product guides? Are you troubleshooting issues for a digital product? Thousands of reasons are in the air here.

That’s why editing tools are always in high demand.

What are Image editors?

‘Image editor’ is an umbrella term for photo editing software that you can use from your computer, phone, and other smart devices.

Photo editors come at all shapes, sizes, and prices. The expensive ones are often bulky, pricey, and require stellar computer configuration. In contrast, others like Good Annotations and Canva are mostly free, with a few premium services. Free tools like Microsoft Paint arrive with the operating system and offer everybody basic tools, which often satisfy nobody or maybe a few bored kids.

You’re probably using a few editing tools already.

Here are some of the most popular editors right now.

  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Lightroom
  • Affinity Photo
  • PhaseOne Capture One
  • Luminar4
  • Good Annotations
  • Gimp
  • PhotoscapeX

The list goes on, almost indefinitely.

The difference between online and desktop tools will help you determine the right tool for you, your team, and your clients.

What’s the difference between online and desktop image editors?

Besides the obvious difference, these tools often serve different users and accomplish different jobs.

What the right tool for you? The answer might not be so straightforward.

Suppose you have a broadband internet connection and can easily annotate images. In that case, online tools are a better choice ten out of ten times. You can create images that will clearly communicate your message to your developers, clients, and team members. The saved time in this process is invaluable, as nothing can bring back the time you’d lose firing up an expensive software from your device.

Other things you don’t have to worry about with online photo editors:

  • Complicated software installation guides.
  • Compatibility of multiple devices.
  • Accessibility and mobility.
  • Device Disk space.
  • Sharing photos.

However, if you don’t have a stable internet connection, online tools can’t help you much.

Desktop tools are often expensive but come densely packed with editing tools and addons. If you’re a professional photographer, you might need to adjust every frame, change the contrasts, dim the lights, etc.

Most online tools will do a mediocre job of helping you out with complex editing tasks. Also, if you lose your internet connection, you lose access to your software. The internet connection is outside your control, and you can’t always count on easy repairs if everything goes south.

Photographers often choose to invest money into high-grade tech and matching software, which usually comes in the shape of desktop-only tools.

The largest issue for desktop editors is the sharability of downloaded files.

Professional photo edits take massive amounts of disk space, sometimes totaling a few dozen gigabytes, and this makes online sharing heavy and slow, if not impossible, in some cases. Most professionals will share photos with external flash drives and cloud-based services.

For each job, there is the right tool.

Most professionals, students, and professionals don’t need highly specialized desktop-only tools.
