Digital cameras and smartphone cameras are easy to use for many children. As they explore using a camera, they learn basic camera skills. Photo editing is a natural complement that adds to kids’ expressive capabilities, and can even inform how they shoot their pics. I’m going to outline some basic concepts for teaching kids photo editing in your classroom or home, and suggest a few project-based approaches as well.
1. Crop and resize
When kids share photos or embed them in school projects, they need to be savvy about size requirements. Teaching them the difference between cropping and resizing is an important photo editing concept. Hint: Resize when you like the picture exactly as it is framed, but it needs to be smaller. Crop when you want to cut something out of the photo, get closer in to your subject, or change the dimensions. There’s a longer explanation here.
2. Try light effects
Exploring the natural light from the sun can be an important lesson for any photographer especially at an early age. Ask children to see how things change when the sun is behind their back and in front of them while taking pictures. How does it change the photo? Does it change the mood of the image? PicMonkey can help children explore light by trying SunGlow, Radiance, Lens Flare, Sunglow, and Spotlight features (in the Effects tab). Encourage them to see what happens as they place the center of the light effect in a variety of positions on the photo.
3. Add graphics and text
Adding graphical elements can be a fun way for a child to create a keepsake from a special event, or labeling parts and diagrams for school projects. In the Graphics tab, kids will find myriad options: simple geometric shapes, cute animals, lots of nature images, and various label graphics. Kids can learn how to select a color from the color picker for one and two-color graphics. Challenge them to see if they can add text to the photo afterwards (Text tab). Tip: When using Arrows graphics, be sure to try the flip buttons in the palette, which can flip the arrow horizontally or vertically.
