Krome Photos Editing Site!!

I found this website, Krome, that offers professional photo editing services and must share the treasure with you. With the amount of time I spend photo editing in photoshop, this is very appealing. The results are wonderful, and you get 25 free “Krome Treatments” just for signing up for the free account. I Love it!! I was excited at the prospect of 25 photo edits for free, and the low rates even after the freebies ran out, so I uploaded some pics that I knew needed some major editing. Uploading was easy with the software made available on the site (here), much like uploading to photobucket or facebook. I was notified that my photos would be edited and I would be notified when they were finished, within 24-48 hours. That was yesterday. Today, I went to the site to find my photos had been edited. Lets check them out a couple out:

So, the picture of my sweetie and I was taken on our wedding day by a cheap disposable camera. It has always been one of my favorites, except for its poor image quality. You can our faces are red and lacking in detail because of poor exposure. The sky and background are dull in color. The Krome treated photo is much improved. Our faces are clearer, our skin no longer looks burnt, the sky is a more vibrant blue, the green greener, and the contrast way better. They even cropped out the random tree on the far right, and some extraneous sky off of the top. I consider myself quite the little photoshop photo editor, and I have to admit that my attempts to beautify this picture did not quite measure up to the Krome treatment.

Take a look at my beagle before and after pics. Again, the contrast is adjusted such that more detail is visible, the major “red eye” in his left eye is eliminated, colors are more vibrant, the photo is cropped and there is an artistic touch with a photo vignette. Pretty cool. I appreciate it because I have not been formally trained, and while I know what I think looks good, I don’t always know where to crop for good photo composition.
What would take me an hour, and likely not turn out as good, is handled by Krome Photos. It is a good place to backup and organize picture files as well. The website allows you to tag photos much like facebook (and even recognizes the people you tag in their other pics), and allows easy photo sharing across several social media sites. If I could change anything about the site, I would give it functionality to keep me logged in (“remember me”) so I wouldn’t have to put in my username and password each time, but that is pretty minor. Also, it would be nice if you could request specific artistic touches and edits, but for this price, the service is amazing. Go get your 25 free Krome treatments, and see what you think. I am hooked.
