Admittedly I'm not as techno-savvy as many of my counterparts, but I'm always open to learn something new. I was excited to discover how to enhance photos easily for my marketing strategies. This is simple enough for even the beginner to perform.
The photo on the left was taken late one Saturday afternoon. It had rained all day, but finally slowed to a drizzle. With my client holding an umbrella so I wouldn't get soaked (more importantly, so the camera wouldn't get wet!), I snapped a few photos since I had to have something to put into MLS.
The second photo shows the home after enhancements through http://picnik.com, a site I discovered through ActiveRain. You'll note I cropped the photo to remove the date the photo was snapped and I was able to sharpen the photo and add a border.
Voila! A little effort made a visible difference. Think how much better the photo will appear to agents and prospects viewing this property on-line or in print. It's a time saver, too, since I didn't need to drive out to re-take the shot.
If you have any other easy suggestions, please share them with me. Thanks!
