When it comes to selling online, you want to make sure that you have the images to sell the idea/product yourself. Images are great because they can say more than words can and are processed by the brain quicker.
However, you might want to add some customization to photos on some blogs or products that highlight specific elements. As well as cropping, enhancing and resizing images, you can also draw on an image. This can help you add an arrow to highlight something or circle an object on a photo.
