Anybody can be a photo-editor with a little time, patience, and this instructable! This assumes a basic knowledge of computer uses, such as the ability to upload photos and save them to your harddrive. :)
Step 1: Change the exposure to make the photo easier to work with
We're trying to get the background as blank as possible, so that we have no colors to worry about getting too saturated while we edit. To do this, click on Exposure , and tinker a little bit til you can start to see the change in background color. Increasing contrast and exposure generally does the trick, but you may need to raise the highlights too.
After this, increase clarity by clicking on the Sharpen tab. This makes details a little easier to see without giving you the normal "HDR" affect that often comes with sharpening a photo. If your photo is too large or small, you can also resize it under the group of edits you are currently using (Basic Edits)
