From seamless image retouching to stunning visual enhancements, sound photo editing techniques transform passive property listings into captivating visual experiences. Photo editing and retouching done right, can amplify buyer engagement, maximize business impact, and propel your MLS site to the next level.

Photos of real estate properties directly impact sales by either grabbing a buyer’s attention or prompting the buyer to move on. As shown in a recent joint survey by Google and the National Association of Realtors® in the USA, 70 percent of surveyed home buyers say they use photos and videos to assess the interiors of any home they wished to purchase. This is why MLS sites consider real estate photo editing and retouching as essential services.

What are some important real estate photo editing techniques?

Photo editing techniques allow you to enhance your images, correct imperfections, and create stunning visuals. They are used by experts to create those professional real estate photos you find on property portals.

The choice of photo editing methods depends upon the quality of raw image, context, and objectives. But they usually include a combination of the following top 12 real estate photo editing and retouching techniques.

1. Color correction


Accurate color representation is crucial to the depiction of any property. Colors directly impact the perception of a property. As online buyers rely on photos to gauge a space and its features, color inaccuracy can mislead buyers and even disappoint them during site visit. It is essential to render colors in professional real estate photos with accuracy.

Color Correction – Before and After
Color Correction – Before and After

How it works:

To achieve the best color representation possible, real estate editors fine-tune colors in their photos. Correcting color issues involves the following techniques:

  • Brightness and contrast: We adjust brightness and contrast levels to reveal details in shadows as well as highlights, driving a balanced and appealing image of a property space.
  • Addressing white balance: Editors need to address white balance along with temperature adjustments evoking natural tints in all elements of the image. White balance correction guarantees the neutrality of whites in the photos ensuring proper representation of other colors. For more information, refer to 10: White Balance, Hue and Saturation below.
  • Fine-tune individual color channels: Hue adjustments create vibrant and visually attractive images. Photo editors fine-tune individual color channels to balance their essence and ensure the colors do not overpower each other.
  • Manage saturation: One needs to balance saturation levels to manage the intensity of colors. This has to be done carefully to avoid over-saturating the images, because that could make the property images look unrealistic and gaudy. Also, take care not to desaturate images to an extent that they look gloomy and listless. For more information, refer to 10: White Balance, Hue and Saturation.
  • Selective color editing: Phot editors also employ the selective color editing technique to target and isolate specific colors in a photo with individual adjustments to each color. This guarantees precise control over the colors and is quite useful in highlighting specific elements within the property or for rationalizing a typical mood.

2. Perspective correction


Property photos commonly suffer from perspective issues. For example, it happens with converging verticals, when using wide-angle lenses. These lenses could distort images converging vertical lines and thus rendering an inaccurate representation of the property. Perspective distortions should be eliminated to ensure a better representation of a property. The perspectives need to be aligned with straight and parallel vertical lines, providing viewers a better look and feel of the space.

Perspective Correction

How it works:

Editors are always searching for real estate photography editing tips, and better ways to correct perspective distortions. They use software tools for perspective correction and to selectively adjust angles and proportions. Straightening vertical lines is the first step for creating visually pleasing representations of the property. Here are some techniques that work:

  • Use of lens correction filters: Photo editing software includes a variety of lens correction filters to automatically correct distortions caused by wide-angle lenses. The filters analyze lens data and introduce adjustments to straighten out the lines, streamlining the editing process.
  • Straightening of crooked lines: The Transform tool in Photoshop, for example, is used to straighten crooked lines in the images. This tool can make precise adjustments to capture architectural details with straight lines, providing an accurate representation of the properties.

Correcting perspective distortions ensure enable prospective buyers to make informed decisions by observing an accurate portrayal of the property.

3. Noise reduction


Image noise impacts the quality of professional real estate photos negatively. Grainy or speckled patterns, noticeable in some property photos, are usually captured in low-light conditions or with faulty high ISO settings. The noise detracts viewers from the real appeal of the photo and even dilutes the viewer’s perception of the property.

Noise Reduction
Noise Reduction

How it works:

To achieve a cleaner look in these photos, it is essential to minimize noise. Here are some techniques that address the noise issues:

  • RAW image processing: If the photos are captured in RAW format, real estate photo editors can reduce noise during the post-processing stage. RAW files contain more details than compressed formats like JPEG. Hence, RAW image processing software can deliver noise reduction to enhance the overall quality of the photo.
  • Leverage noise reduction algorithms: Many photo editing software programs include noise reduction algorithms that analyze the image and reduce noise. Editors use these algorithms to identify and suppress noise patterns without softening the image or eliminating its fine details.
  • Use noise reduction filters: Real estate photo editors use specific noise reduction filters to adjust noise reduction parameters and thus retain complete control over certain frequency ranges and color channels.
  • Blend multiple exposures: During challenging lighting conditions, including low light environments, photographers usually use a string of photos taken under varied lighting conditions. They then blend multiple exposures using HDR (High Dynamic Range) along with other exposure fusion techniques. This approach reduces noise and yet preserves important details in all lighting conditions.

Points to Note: It is important for photo editors to strike a balance between reducing noise and maintaining image sharpness. Excessive noise reduction will render a “plastic” appearance to the photos. Judicious use of noise tools with proper evaluation of final results can help editors to nail the professional look that they need.

4. Manage light and shadows


Lighting probably has the biggest impact on real estate photography. Effective lighting techniques highlight the best features of a property, influence its perception, and capture the true essence of the space. Without proper lighting and balance in shadows, a property can never be presented in its true light, pun intended.

Light and Shadows
Light and Shadows

How it works:

Here are some techniques that we use to manage light and shadows effectively:

  • Adjust exposure: Photo editors leverage exposure settings to ensure balanced distribution of light. They need to perform post-processing on property photos to achieve the right balance of brightness and contrast. This technique preserves highlights and shadows to allow prospective buyers to notice the details clearly.
  • Highlights adjustment: Overexposed highlights can ruin the details of a photo and present an unnatural appearance. Editors reduce highlights to recover photo details in bright areas and also retain important information in every element – including windows, light fixtures, or other bright elements of the scene.
  • Shadows adjustment: Underexposed shadows lack detail. Editors enhance shadows in post-processing to convey hidden details in darker areas for a balanced view of the property in the photos. This adjustment helps in accurately representing the property and its attributes.

Point to note: Tweaking the afore-mentioned settings are extremely useful in day-to-dusk transformations where clients demand daylight settings to be changed to night-time.

5. Object and flash removal


Eliminating unwanted objects and reflections is crucial to present real estate photos effectively. A clean and visually appealing image focuses on key features of the property. And real estate photos shine the best when every element within the photo adds charm and chutzpah to the appearance of the space.

Editors eliminate elements that are not desirable within the frame, including personal belongings or items that obstruct the view of the space. Also, reflections from flash photography could bounce from shiny surfaces like mirrors and distract attention from the property’s aesthetics. Removing or reducing these flash reflections ensures that viewers can see the property clearly without any distractions.

Here are some techniques used regularly by real estate photo editors for object removal as well as for eliminating shadows and reflections:

  • Advanced cloning: Our team of real estate photo editors uses tools like the Clone Stamp for advanced object removal. They enable cloning or sampling of a specific area of an image to seamlessly replace any undesired object. Expert editors ensure that the cloned area convincingly matches its surroundings.
  • Healing: The Healing Brush tool is handy in eliminating smaller objects and glitches on the photos. It automatically blends sampled areas with pixels, delivering seamless results. This tool is ideal for removing specific blemishes, spots, or basic distractions.
  • Use of content-aware fill tools: We use the Content-Aware Fill option to analyze any object’s surrounding areas and fill in the gaps with related and plausible content. Photo editors nowadays use these tools to remove large objects and intelligently fill the space left behind. Which means that the filled-up space blends in with surrounding pixels ensuring a natural look and feel.

Points to note: When removing distracting objects from real estate images, exercise caution and ensure the changes are seamless. You need to pay attention to detail and select replacements precisely, matching textures and colors for a professional final result.

6. Lawn and sky replacement / enhancement


Attractive lawns and skies boost the appeal of real estate photos in exterior shots. These elements present image aesthetics and significantly influence the desirability of the property. And editors can develop visually striking images by enhancing lawns and skies.

Lawn and Sky Replacement/ Enhancement
Lawn and Sky Replacement/ Enhancement

How it works:

The following are techniques are employed regularly to enhance exterior images:

  • Replacing overcast skies: In case the original sky image appears dull or overcast, it is bound to lose visual interest. You can make these pictures appealing by eliminating the existing sky patterns with a fresh and vibrant sky image that aligns well with the composition and appeal of the property. Editors either source a stock photo for the sky replacement process with a wonderful, captivating sky or develop a new one that suits the aesthetic of the property image.
  • Blending the lawns seamlessly: Real estate photo editors ensure seamless integration of the sky and the lawns with the property using a variety of blending techniques. They adjust colors, tones, and shadows to create the visual. This blending process ensures that the final result appears realistic and enhances the overall appeal of the image, adding vibrance with the blue sky and the lush-green lawns.

7. Image sharpening and clarity adjustment


Sharpness and clarity contribute immensely to the overall image quality to build a polished and professional look. A sharp and clear photo can showcase property details perfectly, ensuring that viewers can accurately perceive its features and be sure of what it brings to the table.

Sharpening and Clarity Adjustments
Sharpening and Clarity Adjustments

How it works:

There are several techniques editors use to sharpen images and enhance their overall clarity:

  • Sharpening tools: Most photo editing software provide dedicated image sharpening tools. Editors can selectively increase contrast along the edges guided by parameters including amount, radius, and threshold, adjusting them for desired sharpness.
  • Local contrast adjustments: Our experts harness local contrast settings for image sharpening. Local contrast refers to the contrast between pixels within an image adjacent to each other. Managing local contrast settings enhances the perception of sharpness to make details stand out better. The High Pass filter in Photoshop, for instance, enhances edge details for a smart sharpening effect. One can draw attention to key features and improve clarity by using this approach.
  • Clarity sliders: We use clarity sliders to allow users adjust the mid-tone contrast and render a defined and crisp appearance, with proper emphasis on details.

Points to note: Strike a balance between boosting sharpness and maintaining a natural tone to the photos. Use clarity adjustment judiciously, as their excessive use makes them look unnatural. Pursue subtle application of sharpening techniques to achieve a professional and pleasing result. Find out how property images captured by 20+ photographers were post-processed to resolve imperfections in the raw images.

8. HDR correction and processing


HDR (High Dynamic Range) is a technique that captures a wider range of light information in a scene. It blends multiple exposures of the same shot together to achieve a balanced final image with smart tonal range and better realism. With HDR you can showcase real estate interiors with an expanded dynamic range, or a wider range of lighting conditions.

Sharpening and Clarity Adjustments
HDR Correction and Processing

How it works:

To achieve a balanced and realistic HDR look in real estate photography, the following techniques are used:

  • Capturing multiple exposures: After the photographers capture multiple exposures of a scene, including underexposed and overexposed ones, we leverage HDR to retain details from all elements resulting in a final image that works as a natural representation of the scene. We recreate the scene blending three or more exposures that are photographed—well-exposed, an underexposed instance to capture highlights, and one overexposed image to capture shadows.
  • Blending exposures with specialized software: We use HDR software to merge and blend multiple exposures. We also analyze exposures and automatically align them for HDR image development.
  • Manual blending techniques: Manual blending involves a hands-on approach, using editing software to manually select and blend specific areas of each exposure and stitch together a final image with balanced details and tonal range.

The goal of automatic and manual HDR techniques is to develop an attractive property image that retains details from highlights and shadows and provides a realistic representation of the space.

9. Lens correction


Common lens distortions, such as barrel distortion affect the straightness of lines on real estate property photos. The distortions introduce color fringing that needs to be identified and corrected to ensure that the images are visually pleasing and free from distractions. Some of the problems include barrel distortion that causes straight lines to appear curved like a barrel.

This problem causes architectural lines like door frames to appear bent. On the other hand, chromatic aberration refers to a lens that fails to focus different wavelengths of light resulting in color fringing. Seen colored halos? These halos crop up, especially in areas where contrasting tones meet.

Lens Correction

How it works:

  • Correct chromatic aberration: Photo editors leverage editing tools that offer chromatic aberration correction features to eliminate color fringing manually or automatically. The process involves alignment with different color channels for better accuracy in images.
  • Correct barrel distortion: Photo editors use lens correction profiles available in editing tools to automatically apply necessary adjustments based on the specific lens used for capturing property photos. The profiles help in straightening lines and eliminating distortions. The lens profiles also store known characteristics of a lens that may include vignetting and chromatic aberration.

Points to note: Automatic correction tools for lens profiles are a good starting point for correcting lens distortions, while requiring certain manual adjustments in some cases. Manual adjustments offer finer control and customization, especially when addressing unusual distortions.

Elimination of chromatic aberration and barrel distortion implies proper attention to detail and you have to be diligent and careful about removing these issues.

10. Playing with white balance, hue, and saturation


Proper white balance and color adjustments play a vital role in real estate photos. They ensure accurate representation of colors and define the atmosphere within those pictures.

White balance ensures accurate reproduction of white tones in an image, which impact the overall temperature and perception of the shades in the setting. Adjusting white balance eliminates color casts impacted by light sources, projecting a natural appearance. Additionally, hue and saturation levels in real estate photos impact the mood of the setting, which when tweaked create a desired aesthetic.

Setting white balance, hue and saturation

How it works:

Here are some techniques that we use to fine-tune white balance, hue, and saturation in real estate photos:

  • Adjust temperature and tint sliders: Veteran real estate photo editors are adept in manually adjusting temperature and tint sliders to fine tune white balance. You tweak the temperature slider controls depending on the need of warmth or coolness in the image. The tint slider adjusts green to magenta color balance for rendering all colors accurately.
  • Adjusting hue and saturation levels: Photo editing experts use specific tools to selectively adjust hue and saturation settings within property images. We use warm hues to create a cozy feel or use blue and cool tones to render a serene ambiance. Saturation levels affect the vibrance of the spaces. The levels being tweaked enable editors to boost certain colors, control and balance color harmony, or create a distinct look that sets the desired mood within a space.

These settings enable real estate photo editors to achieve proper white balance and precise color reproduction for setting an amiable atmosphere for prospective buyers.

11. Digital staging and panorama stitching


Digital or virtual staging involves digital addition of furniture, decor, and other elements to property spaces, providing prospective buyers with a sense of possibilities. Digital staging helps them envision how it would feel living in the space.

Virtual staging allows empty properties to be showcased properly, adds a sense of warmth, functionality, and aesthetics to the pictures. By virtually staging a space, buyers can visualize the space with respect to its scale, layout, and potential and how they utilize the space.

Digital Staging
Digital Staging

How it works:

Real estate photo editors rely on diverse techniques for digitally staging spaces. This has become a specialized area even within photo editing and provided by many professional virtual staging services. The staging effort includes incorporating various elements in a vacant space:

  • range of furniture
  • decor options
  • virtual figurines

The staging process also involves the adjustment of the size, position, and orientation of objects to blend seamlessly with the environment.

Professional real estate photo editors are experts in choosing the right furniture and decor to align with the space and the residential style and target market. They retain the individuality of the property without using cliché designs. Additionally, the editors use panoramic stitching techniques that can stitch multiple scenes from different angles to get a single, unbroken image of the property with the lawns, the home, the surroundings, and also the sky.

Points to note: While virtual staging can boost the visual presentation of a property, the edits need to be ethical and transparent. The representations need to carry a disclaimer that the images are digitally altered or staged to maintain honesty and avoid misleading prospective buyers.

12. Batch editing with Lightroom


Batch editing in real estate photography helps editors to maintain visual consistency across multiple photos and thus save on valuable editing time. Batch editing helps editors to apply consistent adjustments to several photos on a simultaneous basis. Real estate editors often need to edit photos of the same property or space that feature similar lighting conditions, composition frame, and settings. This is especially crucial in setting a cohesive visual narrative that spells out “professionalism” in every frame.

Batch editing
Batch editing

How it works:

To achieve efficient batch editing, our set of editors utilize the following techniques:

  • Create presets with synchronization: Expert real estate photo editors define presets that include editing settings and adjustments to apply them to multiple images with a single click. Presets include commonly used adjustments including white balance, exposure, hue and saturation, contrast, and color correction. They are created for easy synchronization across batches of photos.
  • Adjustments in streamlined workflows: An efficient batch editing process requires a streamlined workflow with proper organization and processing of images. All unedited images are pooled into a dedicated folder, divided on the basis of property or room for applying relevant batch edits that match the lighting and editing needs for each set of images.

Points to note: When performing batch edits, review each image individually to check the adjustments applied to them during the batch process. Although batch editing saves time for consistent adjustments, attention to detail is necessary to fine-tune some individual images.

What are some common mistakes to avoid when editing real estate photos?

Real estate photo editors for MLS sites have to be extra careful to avoid the following mistakes:

  • Not adhering to the MLS portal rules: Failing to understand and adhere to the portal rules could result in rejection of a listing. Photo editors need to understand the rules and adhere to the dimensions, sizes, styles, and formats required for the photos to be uploaded to a portal. Else, it could mean a waste of time in correcting them in the last minute.
  • Perspective issues: Some photos shot through fisheye lenses might provide a unique perspective, but can carry a risk in representation if not executed well. This effect is visually off-putting and can misrepresent a room’s actual size and shape. Any distortion of perspective could lead potential buyers to feel deceived and skeptical. Edit such photos or discard them altogether.
  • Individually editing each photo: Do not make the mistake of editing each photo independently without considering the consistency factor in photos. Differently edited photos could lead to a disjointed set of images. The inconsistent color tones, exposure levels, and white balance can be jarring for potential buyers. Maintaining a cohesive editing style in all the real estate photos of a property is vital for conveying a harmonious impression.
  • Varying light temps: Inconsistent light temperatures, such as mixing warm indoor lighting with cool outdoor lighting, can create a jarring contrast in real estate photos. How can you effectively manage different light sources and color temperatures to maintain a visually pleasing and cohesive atmosphere? This inconsistency can make the photos look unprofessional and distract potential buyers from appreciating the property’s features. Strike a balance in the lighting during the editing process to nail the expected visual aesthetic on every photo for that property.
  • Crooked lines: Crooked lines in real estate photos can create a sense of unease and give the impression of a poorly maintained property. Whether it’s tilted horizons or skewed vertical lines, this mistake can undermine the perception of space. Pay attention to the proper composition and edit the photos to share them with straight lines for a visually pleasing presentation.

Legal and ethical considerations play a crucial role in the editing process of real estate photos. Without paying heed to the legalities involved, real estate photo editors could face issues. Here are the key aspects to keep in mind:

  • Strive for a balanced approach: While it’s crucial to enhance the visual allure of real estate photos, excessive manipulation must be avoided. Finding the right equilibrium ensures that potential buyers receive an honest portrayal of the property’s reality, allowing them to anticipate what awaits during an in-person visit.
  • Maintain accuracy: The edited photos should faithfully depict the genuine state and condition of the property. Tampering with essential aspects like room dimensions, layout, or overall condition can mislead buyers and potentially lead to legal complications. It is vital to ensure that the edited photos align authentically with the property’s true features and characteristics.
  • Embrace transparency through disclosure: Whenever significant edits or alterations are made to the photos, transparently disclose them to potential buyers. By openly communicating any modifications, such as digitally staged furniture or added elements, trust is established, empowering buyers to make well-informed decisions based on a genuine understanding of the property’s actual state.
  • Respect intellectual property rights: Upholding the principles of copyright law is paramount when editing real estate photos. If you incorporate images or elements created by others, ensure that you possess the appropriate permissions or licenses. Breaching copyright laws can result in legal consequences and damage your professional standing.
  • Safeguard the interests of all parties: Real estate transactions entail substantial financial investments and personal decisions. By adhering to legal and ethical considerations during the editing process, you contribute to a fair and transparent environment that safeguards the interests of both buyers and sellers. Ensuring that the edited photos faithfully represent the property mitigates potential disputes and facilitates smoother transactions for everyone involved.
