UPDATE 10.08.2014
Congratulation to our L6 winner, @Iakwbos. Good job here!
Also thank you to everyone who participated. You guys are awesome!
You can also see outstanding photos submitted here.

After the skip from last week, were back with another installment of MIUI Photography Classroom! Yey! But before we begin, I know some of you are wondering: "Why is Allakazoo's name spelled J-E-N-Z-1? And whats with the stupid grin on his face?" Sorry to disappoint you but obviously Im not allakazoo hehe...

Anyway, Im taking over for this week's tutorial and going to share to you some tips on how to give your #miphotos that extra oomhp!

So without further ado, here is Lesson #6,

Post-Processing - Making Good Photos Better



First, lets set something straight. Post-processing your photos isn't cheating and definitely not a crime (unless over-done and edited way too much.) Every Pro Photographer worth his salt knows that post-processing is essential to make a photo "pop." Much more so with mobile phone photographers, Post-processing compensates for the weaknesses in our cameras.

If you happen to be a member of photography group or chanced upon one. You might come across the word SOOC or straight-out-of-camera. This means that a photo was captured, saved and shared as is. That's it. But let's face it, a PERFECT picture isn't easy to come by does it?

In this lesson I'm going to teach you how to use a FREE app called Snapseed. So head on over to the Playstore and download it. Don't worry, I'll wait. Done?Let's get to it then.

Example #1
1. Select the Picture: Open Snapseed and tap on the camera icon with the plus sign found at the top right corner. Choose the photo you want to edit from the gallery. (You can also take a photo directly from the app, but I like to use the MIUI camera so I just pull the image into the app from the gallery.)

2. Crop for the Right Composition: The first thing I usually determine is whether I want to crop my images or not. But more often I find myself cropping to improve composition and framing. Tap the "CROP" module then use the icons on the left to choose the aspect ratio and the icon on the right to toggle between landscape and portrait. When you're done, tap on the "check" on the lower right. (I'll be refering to this check as "OK" from here on out)


3. Rotate to Get the Right Angle: I also try rotating the image a bit to see if it would look better from a different angle. To do that, tap on STRAIGHTEN.


4. Before v.s. After: You can always check how your image looks like before and after applying your choices just by tapping on the image.

5. Automatic: Before applying any further tweaks, I always try the "Automatic" option. Usually Snapseed does a pretty good job of figuring out what needs to be done.



6. Edit it Yourself! Fortunately for us, the image didn't improve much with AUTOMATIC selected. (Yes, FORTUNATELY. Because if it did, there's no point in continuing with this tutorial. Haha.) Moving on…

7. Tune Image Module: The bulk of my post-processing is done in the "TUNE IMAGE" module. Here, you can increase/decrease brightness, ambiance, contrast,saturation, shadows and warmth (or white balance).

For the benefit of those who aren't familiar with these controls, here's a brief description of what they do and how they affect your photos:

  • Brightness - Swiping to the right brightens the photo, while swiping to the left darkens it.
  • Ambiance - The Ambiance control is a special type of contrast that controls the balance of light in a photo. It can be used to balance backlit photos or to accentuate contrasts throughout your photo. Swipe right for photos where the subject is darker than the background. Swipe left to increase the contrast of dark objects and create a slight glow around darker objects. This is especially helpful in photos that are slightly flat.
  • Contrast - Swiping to the right increases the contrast, while swiping to the left reduces the contrast.
  • Saturation - Swiping to the right increases saturation, or vibrancy, of the colors. Swiping to the left decreases saturation. A value of -100 will result in a photo completely without color.
  • Warmth - Use the Warmth control to adjust the color balance of the image. This is helpful if the image was shot in a difficult lighting situation. Moving the control to the left will cool the image, making it bluer and less orange. Moving to the right will warm the image, making it more orange and less blue. At the extreme ends of the control are the ability to correct for fluorescent and other more extreme colorcasts.



8. Just Scroll: It may take some figuring out how to use the app but once you get the hang of it, it becomes very simple. When you're in a module, just scroll up or down to choose from the available options and scroll right (to increase) or left (to decrease) the levels.

9.  Brightness: With brightness selected, I scrolled right 'til I reached the brightness I want at +14.


10.  Ambiance, Saturation and Warmth: Scrolling up and down, I quickly set the Ambiance to -32, Saturation to +7 and Warmth to +15.

11.  Details make all the difference: I'm a bit satisfied at this point but I wanted my dog's fur and the grass to be more detailed so I go to "DETAILS" to fine tune the photo's clarity. You can tap on the magnifying glass to see the difference in increasing or decreasing the options. So, inside DETAILS, I first choose "Sharpening." My subject is a bit blurry at +0 so I scrolled to the right and found +100 to be good (you can slide this down a bit. I don't normally go this high unless absolutely necessary.) After that, I scrolled down to "Structure" and set this to + 39 to give the fur some texture.



12. Final Adjustments: We're almost done, but since this is kind of a portrait shot, let's add a tweak one last time. So swipe on the modules and select "CENTER FOCUS" and tap on the icon with a star and select Portrait 2. You can still adjust this by tapping on the image and scrolling up or down and left to right.


13.  Done! The last thing to do now is to save your masterpiece so hit the on the top bar. Saving… Done. Congrats!

AFTER


Example #2
For this example, I'm going to assume you've already got the hang of navigating inside Snapseed. So this would just be a quick rundown of my editing process. I know what you're thinking: "This photos already looks good as is, why edit it still?" You'll gonna ruin it you say? Well we'll know soon enough.



1. Automatic first: In this photo, I used HDR mode on my MIUI camera to bring out more details but I find my subject a bit dark for my taste. So I open Snapseed and tapped on 'AUTOMATIC". I'm satisfied with how it brought out the clouds so I tap OK and move on.


2. Selective Adjust: Next I go to "SELECTIVE ADJUST", tapped the plus(+) icon at the bottom and tapped on the face. Now you can see a letter "B" inside a blue circle (I’ll refer to this as Selective Adjustment Point or SAP.) You can scroll on that and adjust brightness, contrast and saturation.


3. Make it better: I went ahead and brought the brightness to +58, then created another SAP and placed it on the arms. I gave it a +32 brightness.

Tip: You can make the area you want to selectively adjust bigger or smaller by using a two finger swipe.

4. Different Ratio: I'm a bit satisfied with the aspect ratio andhow my subject is composed so I go to CROP, chose 3:2 aspect ratio, cropped it according to the rule-of-thirds then clicked OK.



5. Drama: But, I'm not quite satisfied yet, so I go to DRAMA, tap on the star at the bottom, chose Bright 1


6. Adjust again: I find it too bright so I tap on the image and scroll left to bring the filter strength to +50. Then scrolled up to Saturation and brought it down to -22. Now all that's left is to...

7. Done! Save the image to my gallery by hitting SAVE and I'm done!


Now doesn't that look nicer?

There are a lot more things you can do with Snapseed so I suggest you experiment with it. There are also tons of other photo editing apps on the market to give your #miphotos that extra oomph. Listed below are few of my favorites apps:
  • Pixlr Express
  • Aviary
  • After Focus
  • Perfectly Clear

Do take note that with hundreds of photo editing apps and thousands of filters available at your disposal, it's easy to go over-board with the editing and effects. It's nice to experiment, but there's a difference between POST-PROCESSING and PHOTO MANIPULATION (That'll be next.)

The key to post-processing is bringing-out the best while keeping your photos looking natural as possible. Just keep it simple. keep it clean.

Good luck and keep on shooting!

I'd like to fire my shots...
Photos taken with my Samsung Galaxy S3 Runnning MIUI V5, because sadly, S3's camera produces a more crispier and cleaner photos, in my experience compared to MI3 (shameless comment: Release kernel source codes already! )


Edited using Snapseed and Perfectly Clean in my Xiaomi MI3 running AOSPA.

Here's what i did:
Screenshot 1 Crop.jpg Screenshot 2 sharpen.jpg Screenshot 3 selective adjust.jpg Screenshot 4 minor tuneup.jpg Screenshot 5 vignette.jpg

So from Good to Better:

Good... bee before.jpg now how about BETTER. bee after.jpg
Here are some more GOOD TO BETTER pictures....

1. Good... bloom before.jpg now make it BETTER! bloom after.jpg
2. Good... bud before.jpg BETTER! bud after.jpg
3. Good still... double before.jpg whazam BETTER! double after.jpg
4. Good Good Good... lone before.jpg BETTER BETTER BETTER. lone after.jpg
5. Purr...y Good. meow before.jpg PURRR...Y BETTER! Meow After.jpg
6. Again another Good Flower... orange before.jpg make it Better! orange after.jpg
7. Yet another Good Flower... santan before.jpg yeah yeah you know the drill, BETTER Image created with Snapseed.jpg
8. And last but not the least, another Good flower for you... pair before.jpg BETTER! pair after.jpg

You know guys, the camera's in our smartphones can capture some great things, so let's make good use of it.

Here's my entry.
I was at my friend's wedding last saturday and snap this when the groom and the bride are walking down the isle and walk pass me.
I quickly snap a few picture and i'm able to get a panning shot in the process.

Before

IMG_20140927_201634_ori.jpg

As you can see here in the picture, due to the dark and yellow lighting.. the overall image is a little be off-sharp and it do not really have a focused subject.

What i did next is edit it using Pixlr Express on my phone.

Screenshot_2014-09-30-23-50-16.png

Firstly i touch-up the detail on her face using Heal then i adjusted the Contrast and also Brightness to highlight the bride more.

Then using Focal which is also Tilt-shift, i make the background others then the bride to be more blur so that i can get my subject which is the bride to be on the foreground.

Next, i use Sharpen and Smooth to enhance the overall texture of the image especially the bride.

Lastly by using Color, i adjusted the Hue and also Saturation to make the image less warm/reddish.

Here's my final product.
After

Hope you guys will like this.

Original (Redmi Note)


Edited with SnapSeed


Few important tips to share.

1. Think before you snap. Have an idea of what you want to capture before antually snapping it.

2. Dont overdo the effects. The purpose of applying effects is to enhance a photo, not to make a photo looks extra bad or artificial.

3. Lighting is critical. Make sure you have enough light for good exposure on the subject. If needed, re position the object or add addtional light source such as torch light. Or wait for the sun to come and shine at requires angle.

4. Watch your horizon.  Dont forget to align the photo as required.

Its better to post 1 good picture than a bunch of bad ones.
