There are a few ways that you can enhance your digital photos with or without a camera. There's more than one way to take a photo, and there are plenty of software packages & accessories that might also make a difference. Here are some suggestions that could spruce up your photos.

Enhance Your Digital Photos

To begin with a better camera can make some difference. Different cameras have different specifications, especially relating to the resolution and optical zoom. Resolutions vary, and cameras with greater mega-pixel resolutions will produce higher resolution photos. In addition to this, it is also worth noting the optical zoom options with which you can zoom in further. This camera option can also potentially enhance digital photos.

You can also enhance your digital photos with camera accessories. Camera accessories such as tripods can provide a base for your camera. The camera is placed on the tripod so that you do not hold the camera up. This is a good way to reduce potential photo blur.

The weather can always be a factor in digital photography. If its pouring with rain, chances are that rain drops could soak the camera lens. So, take photos when it isn't raining. Grey and cloudy days are not ideal for exciting digital photos even when not raining.

Remember that not all photos have to be landscape shots. Rotate the camera 90 degrees to take portrait shots. The advantage of a portrait shot is that less of the surrounding landscape will be included in the photo. If the subject is very large, like a big tower, then a clockwise rotation of the camera will likely be a better way to fit it in than taking the shot from further distance which will reduce the size of the tower. Note the photo included in the top left of this article which is a portrait shot.

Camera options such as best shot options are good to select if they match your photo. Best shot options will configure the camera for more specific shots. For example, there may be best shot options for scenery, night scenes, sport, flowing water, flowers, fireworks, retro and natural green. When a suitable option is selected this too will enhance the photograph.

Then you can also edit a photograph further if required. You'll probably need a USB cradle to add photos to digital editing software packages. Consider freeware photo software such as Google Picasa 3 which has some good options for photo editing. With software such as this you can crop, resize, adjust contrast, convert to black and white, saturate and add text. A little bit of editing can make some difference.

These are just a few suggestions. With better cameras, editing software and other accessories you can enhance your photos. However, remember that there is no super camera or photo software package that will transform a weak photo to a great one.
