Drones and Post Processing Your Images

Drones can help you to capture images you wouldn’t be able to otherwise.

A few tips when first trying out your drone:

  • Don’t try and fly too high or for too long, start off slow and learn how to control it before taking it up high
  • Just like when using your camera try to shot with the sun behind you, not in-front
  • Don’t fly when it’s windy
  • Some places do ban drones so make sure you check before lift off

Post processing these photos with Smart Photo Editor couldn’t be easier.
