- Editing software
Be careful when editing a photo to retain its quality. Stretching and bad contour are common examples of mistakes made during the edit.
For print publications a high resolution image (300dpi) is best. For the web low resolution (72dpi) is preferred. The image library (staff access only) labels images as appropriate for print or web use.
Collage and montage are examples of digital photo manipulation. Photographic collaged or montaged imagery is not part of UniSA's photographic style.
Adobe Photoshop is probably the best photo editing software available. However it is very expensive so you may not have it licensed to your PC.
Software help - Images for the Web is a guide to using Paint.NET, an excellent free application developed by Washington State University. You will need to log a Help Desk Service Call and request the installation of Paint.NET on your PC or, if you have administrator access, you can download Paint.NET and install it yourself.
