In iPhoto '11 Essential Training, Derrick Story offers an in-depth tour of the popular photo management software from Apple, demonstrating its various features for organizing, editing, and sharing images. The course covers techniques to categorize and combine images into custom collections using iPhoto's geotagging, face detection, and Smart Album features, and offers insight on how to perform key image corrections and enhancements. Also covered are tutorials on building customized slideshows and outputting collections to calendars, books, and greeting cards. Exercise files accompany the course.
Another terrific quick fix that we have available to us in iPhone 11 is Enhance. This is sort of a magic kind of tool. I am going to go to Full Screen right here. It's in Quick Fixes and it's right up here. It's the second one. Now, as we look at this shot, it could definitely use some enhancement. It's a little flat, as we say. It's a little undersaturated. So I'm going to click Enhance and you will get to see what it does.
Then I'm going over to the Adjust panel and let you see really what it does. So we will take you behind the scenes too. So let's start by just clicking the Enhance button. As you will notice, quite a difference. Enhance works particularly well on shots that are little flat. You know, they lack contrast and they lack color. Now, what exactly happened? Let me get the Shift key so you can see the difference here. There is how where we were before. Here is where we are now. So, quite a difference, and it's so funny.
After you've done the Enhance and you look at the original shot, you go, "oh, my God, that was terrible," whereas maybe you didn't really think that before. Image editing will do that to you. Let's go to Adjust and see what actually happened. So a number of things happened. One of the things over here in Levels. These were moved all the way out. And I'll undo this so you can actually see that, and it moved in the Levels control. So in other words it increased the contrast. Then it increased the saturation a bit.
We moved over just this bit here, and it warmed up the temperature ever so slightly. Now I am going to Revert to Original so you can exactly what happens here. So we will do that. You see these were all the way out here. When you have these big gaps here and we will be taking about this throughout the image editing movies. That means there's no image information there and that usually means a flat photograph or what we call low contrast. So Enhance identified all of that and fixed it.
So let's just go back to Quick Fixes, go to Enhance, and there we go. It's a pretty nice tool. If you want to see what it's actually doing to help you learn about image editing, just go to the Adjust pan and it will illustrate for you.
