Hi! In this video I am going to show you a quick and easy (and free!) way to improve your photo quality drastically for product review blogging or for selling store products. Keep in mind to not over edit so you keep the item's true colors. This can be done even for photos taken using cellphone!

I have used photos from my cellphone, digital camera, and DSLR camera for this video demonstration. The products that I used in the video can be found in this blog post. For how I set up the background and light for these photos, please click here for the video.

Video Tutorial


The quickest and easier way to improve your photo quality is by adding highlight to your photo. You can do this via free software like Picasa (from Google) or PicMonkey (web-based program).



Picasa is a free software developed by Google.

  • The highlight option is under the 2nd tab.
  • Adjust the slider till you are happy with your result.
  • Remember to save your edits.


PicMonkey is a free web based photo editing program.

  • The highlight feature is under the EXPOSURE section.
  • Adjust the slider till you are happy with your result.
  • Remember to save your photo. You might want to save every now and then in case PicMonkey crashes or your computer freezes.
