I stumbled onto this edited picture and couldn’t help but want to blog about it. Coming from me as a designer, I just found this so so bad editing.
Unless you have never seen a picture from a digital device before, your gut feel will tell you there’s something amiss by looking at the picture.
Find the mistakes in the picture
Let me describe from a designers point of view the more obvious mistakes.
- The logos on the left are very white and unaffected by the shop’s lighting.
- All logos on the right are angled, which will happen if you’re not taking a photo straight on. The logos on the left maintain its square shape without any angles.
- The green line drawn shows the alignment. And because there are “invisible” lines to the counter’s design, it’s easier to tell the alignment is off.
- Logos on the left do not fit properly into the boxes on the last row as compared to the original.
How I would have done it
The thing about being a designer is you can be quite the perfectionist, depending on how perfect an image or result you want to produce.
What I would have done was remove the original logos first. Then add my own logos, after which I correct the perspective needed. Once I’m happy with that, I’ll start work on making the logo more immersed with the original image.
