3 Interesting Ways To Edit And Improve A Photo’s Frame And Composition

Posted on Aug 27 2016 - 2:00pm by Editorial Staff


A good photo is only as good as its frame and composition – as the effect that both can have on the final result is poignant to say the least. The way in which the main elements of your photo are framed and the manner in which your composition arranges them along with all the other elements can make a huge difference.

If you’re starting to experiment with editing your photo in order to improve its frame and composition, here are 3 interesting ways that you could get some great results:

Don’t stick the main element in the middle

Many beginners make the mistake of thinking that the main element should automatically be right in the middle of the photograph. While in some cases that can work, more often than not moving them off-center to show how they interact with the rest of the composition can be better.

Learn the rule of thirds

At the heart of framing and composition is the rule of thirds which essentially dictates that you should divide your photo into thirds (both vertically and horizontally). You can then use the lines and intersections as guidelines and position the frame and edit the composition accordingly.

Use diagonal lines for action

If you’re editing the composition and frame of a photo where there is some movement or some other action – diagonal lines can help to bring out that effect. Sometimes it helps to even rotate the photo slightly before cropping its frame so that the main element is positioned diagonally.

At the end of the day these methods of editing photos are really just guidelines, and it will boil down to experimentation and experience. If you want to get started editing photos quickly and effectively, you should give Movavi Photo Studio (http://www.movavi.com/photosuite/) a try.
