Photo Editing on the Go!
Underwater photography can be challenging. Sometimes you get the composition right but the shot can be off. For example the colour, the lighting or the contrast may need to tweaking. Before this could be challenging to fix if you didn’t have Photoshop. However now with all the new apps available it’s really simple to do from your phone or tablet.
A lot of cameras have WiFi so you can connect to them between dives. Check out your photos and see which ones worked and which you want to retake on your next dive. We have the Olympus Tough TG5 this is great for connecting to our phones and starting editing straight away!
Here are some of our on the go editing tips for diving photos that we have learnt along the way!
#1 Dive+ app
This is a fantastic app for color correction. With a press of only 1 button you can change the colour on photo or video. Take them from the washed out blue to bringing all the red back. Now you have a fantastic contrasting photo! You can then either share straight to Facebook or to your camera roll.
This app is brilliant! You can easily manipulate your photos. Adjusting everything from exposure to contrast to healing any backscatter. The more you practice with it the more you can do. With the healing and patch tool you can even remove any unwanted subjects such as a diver, their bubbles or a distracting fish!
