Editing Images on Photobucket
Focus, Brush, Add Text, and Others
Let's get to it!
To start, select an image you wish to edit then select the Image Editor from the toolbar.
You can also access the Image Editor while viewing an individual image.
Once the editor is open, the editing tools will be on the left-hand side of the screen.
- Hover your cursor over this menu to expand it and select a tool by clicking on the button.
Undoing and Saving
Made a change that you are not happy with? Simply click the Undo button to revert the changes back.
To save your image after you've finished editing it, click the Export button. The edited image will be saved in the same album where the original image is saved.
Adjustments and Orientation
If you are looking to crop or rotate your image, simply click on the Transform button.
The buttons directly below your image will let you mirror the image either vertically or horizontally and rotate your image 90º both clockwise and counter-clockwise. You can also use the rotation bar under the image to rotate the image at a maximum of 45º intervals.
With the Crop tool, you can select a custom area to crop by clicking and dragging the cropping arrows in the bottom right or top left of the image, or you can select one of our preset aspect ratios for great-looking crops. The final size of the cropped area will be shown in the center of the image.
Scroll down to see all customized crop sizes for Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
We have the following tools under the Adjust option that use a simple slider to make your changes smoother:
Brightness - Adjust the overall lightness or darkness of your image.
Saturation - Adjust the intensity of the color in your image.
Contrast - Adjust the blacks and the whites of your image. High contrast means the blacks are really dark and the whites are really bright. While a low contrast will make your image look like it has a gray wash to it.
Gamma - Adjust the overall brightness of an image. Use this feature to help make sure your images don’t look too bright or too dark.
Clarity - Will adjust how sharp the image is. This feature will adjust the colors of the image.
Exposure - Adjust the amount of light that affects your image.
Shadows - Adjust the details of the darker areas of your image.
Highlights - Adds extra emphasis to the brightness of the image.
Whites - Adjust the details of the white balance of your image.
Blacks - Adjust the details of the black balance of your image.
Temperature - Adjusts the tint of the images. The lower the temperature, the more of a blue filter it will show, whereas a higher temperature will give a hint of orange.
Choose from a variety of filters for your photo to enhance your photo in new and dynamic ways. You can scroll through all of the filters using the scroll bar on the right.
The bar on the selected filter will let you control how much the filter affects your photo.
Use this to keep one area of your photo clear while blurring the rest of the photo to help your image pop more. Use the slider to adjust the focus and blur.
Decided that you’d like to add a little something of your very own? The Brush tool gives you a few options to do that! After you choose your color, go ahead and select the size of your brush. Now paint away!
When you open the Text tool, a text box will pop up on your image. Double-click on the text box to type in your desired text. Now select your desired text color and font from below. You can also rotate and resize your text, as well as position it where you’d like. You can even adjust the opacity of your font or the background of the text box.
Use the stickers feature to add stickers onto your image to add a little character. After selecting the sticker you’d like to use, you can mirror it horizontally or vertically or even click and hold to resize and rotate the image. Not happy with how it looks? Just click on the trash can icon to remove the sticker.
Take your pick from a selection of different frames to accent your photo.
