 Fixing Photos Using

This was a photo I took last fall and never used because it had telephone wires (which I detest), was over exposed with heavy sunlight overhead.  However, I was playing around in and decided to try a few things.

This is the original photo - notice the telephone pole and wires on the right and some junk ooff to the right..

First I decreased the “exposure” and enhanced the “contrast”. It helped. Then I increased the colors using “saturation” and “temperature”  Getting better. Next and most important, I cloned out the telephone pole and wires on the far left and some junk on the right-hand side of the photo. (Play around with the clone feature. It takes some practice, but it’s not too hard to master.)

Last, I used the Sepia feature found in "Touch-up" to give it an old look (which wouldn’t have worked with the telephone wires)…

 Now apply this to your MLS photos. You may find you can salvage a not so great photo using rather than going back and retaking a new photos.
