When it comes to formatting your images, there's lots of choices. Now, this is just a quick overview of the different color correction and exposure adjustments you could make. Remember, iPhoto is a full featured tool and there's lots of things you can do. There's full classes here on Lynda.com that explore the tools inside of iPhoto. I just want to give you a quick overview of the most useful effects. Let's click over here. Double click to go to this page and I'll talk about the first type of effect. Over here in Options, you'll see that there are four different choices.
You can go with the original image and let's set this back up to full opacity to start. In this case want to stylize the background photo, so I could apply a Sepia effect or an Antique effect that goes for bronze or a simple black and white image. And then, of course in this case, because it's a background photo, I could adjust it back. These effects are a quick way for you to stylize an image and notice how easy it is to come up with different looks.
