Philadelphia Real Estate Helpful News and Views : Before and After We Can Work Magic When We Use Tools

Before and After We Can Work Magic When We Use Tools

Dick Greenberg  sponsored a photography contest for May . Yes I know it is June . I have good news .The contest was extended . This has given me the opportunity to submit my entry to the contest of  Before and After . In our MLS we are not allowed to have a signature on the photo we submit to the multiple listing service . They will either black it out or they remove it . They  also do not allow a photo with a picture of a Real Estate for sale sign in it . It will automatically be removed with a letter to the broker of record and warning not to do it again .

When I am using my photos in a blog usually do put a signature on them but not all the time .

Here is a Picture I took of the outside of a condo building.

 

Before Picture

before - picture

 

I wanted to show the sign . So you could read  the words on the sign better .   I used my favorite photo editor  which is free . It is called iPiccy . I downloaded the picture  . Then I cropped the picture .  I did need to crop it twice before I receive the desired effect  and hit apply .   Then I scrolledt down to sharpen . Once I was happy with the way it looked I again hit apply .  When using the picture for a blog I use a frame . When using for the MLS I skip this step .   Go to the far left pick frame  When I am done editing I save the photo .  Here is the finished picture . What magic we make when we take the time to use our tools

Hi Hannah Williams you did a great job of making magic..... however, not everyone can.... one needs to know how to use the tools to make that magic as you did...

Hannah great job on making the sign pop out and the whole frame looks so much better cropped down.

Posted by Anna Banana Kruchten,CRS,CRB,GRI, Arizona's Top Banana of Real Estate! (Phoenix Property Shoppe) 4 months ago

Hi Hannah,

I can see the difference with the sharpening. It also helps woth the contrast. Great job! You are right it did need to be cropped - just by taking that one car out made a difference. But that tree is awesome!  Something for the buyer to see and take in when they tour the property!
