Almost every photo can benefit from some enhancement, from exposure adjustments to cropping. In this course, author Rich Harrington shows how to improve photos using iPhoto. The course describes how to crop and straighten photos; remove red eye; improve exposure, color, and contrast; and refine images by retouching blemishes, removing noise, and adding special effects like vignettes.

While iPhoto has many purposes, including organizing, and publishing, the bulk of the work we're going to do today is editing. As such, we need to use the edit mode of the application. If you have an image open, you can go ahead and navigate between images by using the upper arrows here. This allows you to switch between. You also can see that by looking at the gallery view here, and with that selected, same idea. When I press Command+E, it goes into Edit mode, and all of the adjustments appear on the right here.
I can Exit by just clicking back on the image. So it's an easy in and out. Command+E will take you to Edit. Double-clicking on the image will exit. If you want to switch to other modes, there are also buttons across the bottom, and if you can't remember that keyboard shortcut, simply clicking the Edit button will switch you into its mode.
