3 Easy Photo Editing Tools to Perfect Your Vacation Photos

3 Easy Photo Editing Tools to Perfect Your Vacation PhotosOkay. So you're back home from the perfect vacation where you shot some amazing photos. Now what? Sifting and sorting through all those files and editing them can be boring and time consuming while also taking away from moments you could spend enjoying your photographic marvels and sharing them with friends and family. Here are three photo editing tools to help make the most of your travel photography as quickly and easily as possible.

 

Flickr
Flickr? Yeah, Flickr. In terms of online image hosting sites go, Flickr's an oldie but – IMHO – a goodie. There are basic editing functions to help when you simply want to crop or, say, lighten a file. Plus, all users get one terabyte of storage for free. So, it's ace for storing and organizing photos. The site's many communities and members add a resourceful social aspect to the site. Flickr's recently revamped app is pretty swell as well and makes editing, storing and sharing on the go a breeze – and is a great way to access all your shots online when you're away from your desktop.

Lightroom 5
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is great for when you've got a lot of large files to edit and organize. Used by pros and amateurs alike, it can take some getting used to but is probably the best desktop solution to pretty much all your photo editing needs. And once you get the hang of its “powerful yet simple automatic adjustments and features as well as state-of-the-art advanced tools” you'll wonder how you ever managed as a photographer without it. Lightroom's not free, but you can download a trial version of the software. There's also an extremely new Lightroom app that's now available for Creative Cloud users.

 

Pic Collage
If you're like me, you take a gazillion photos to document your travels (even if you're only “traveling” to the supermarket to do your weekly shopping). Sometimes you want to share a bunch of images from a trip or special event but don't want to go through doing so for every individual image or find that trying to select one to two specific photos is too difficult. That's when making a collage comes in handy – and the Pic Collage app makes it super easy to do. Free to download and available for iPhone and Android, the app's not perfect but is incredibly intuitive, promising users the chance to “party with your photos.” With more than 55 million downloads, the award winning Pic Collage appears to be throwing one heck of a popular shutterbug shindig.
