But there is also a possibility you need to cut the pictures, to brighten them (too dark) or just to change something which is not right on the picture or annoying.
Re-sizing, changing the colors, brighten them up, making a picture black and white or to add a nice filter, is not difficult at all.
You can use Photoshop or Gimp.

Ten tips and tricks to 'do' your own make-up for a photoshoot.
When you start modelling it is necessary to think about your own management. The best thing to can do, from the start, is to stay organized. As soon as you are going to do fotoshoot, whether TFP or paid jobd, you will get a lot of pictures. Some are for publishing on the internet, some are just for your eyes only or others are pictures in high resoltion which needs to be edited first.
Your pictures probably need to be framed, re-sized or selected before you start to upload them on your own Social Media.
You might want to think about where you want to storage your pictures. Do not take any risk to loose or your pictures because you only save them on your mobil or pc. A mobile can get lost, a personal computer might get a crash some day.
Make sure you copy and save a back-up on a storage website that works for you and has options to save them for your eyes only.
