As you can imagine, I snapped a very large number of photos - some good, some not so good.
But what I loved doing during our 'downtime' while travelling was to go through these photos and use various editing features provided by my iPhone to change the fairly ordinary photos into something a lot more special.
In some cases, this just meant improving the lighting a bit. cropping or slightly rotating the photo. For others, it mean using more advanced editing tools to improve the detail shown in indoor or outdoor photos that had poor lighting. Sometimes the difference was just amazing!
Below is just one photo (of Salisbury Cathedral) that was a bit dark. Look at how a quick edit made this photo look almost like a painting and brought out some great effects in the clouds.
For those of you interested in learning how to use your iPhone/iPad to create better photos, I will soon be scheduling a special workshop on this topic. It will go beyond just the basics of taking of managing photos on your iPad and iPhone, delving into the built-in editing features of your device as well as looking at some apps that can provide even more editing features. We'll talk about iCloud Photo Sharing, iCloud Photo Library, Photo Stream and more.
