Lightroom and any similar program.

Another technique is the use of the Blending mode. This process allows changing the way a layer interacts with another layer including the adjustment layers to achieve a range of effects such as changing the brightness, colours and contrast.

Aside from the layers it also recommended to crop the image. There are available guides in cropping such as the methods of the rule-of-thirds, golden ration, golden spiral. In this way, having a clean photo before editing saves time.

Another editing procedure is the use of the Healing Brush. This way is being used in performing re-touching tasks. This works by lending sampled pixels with the original pixels to create a finer image.

Another form of editing is the use of bracket editing. This happens when a normal photo is taken, then two more are taken--but the one is under-exposed one and the other is over-exposed. The three images may be experimented together with the use of a white point as the images are merged together. After this, save the resulting HDR (High Dynamic Range) file.
