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.
I am going to talk a moment about Revert to Original and Revert to Previous. Both of these allow you to go backwards after you have edited an image, but they do behave a little differently, and let's see how that works. Now we are looking at this shot right here. I have done some editing on it already. I increased the saturation and the contrast. If I wanted to go back to the original photo, I would just click on the Revert to Original right here and that would take me back to the state of the photo when I originally brought it into iPhoto.
I can also get to that up here at Photos, down here, Revert to Original. So we have two ways to do that. Now I am going to do another editing session on it. I am going to add Edge Blur. So we will just add a little bit of edge blur there and you notice this button now changes to Revert to Previous. So if I wanted to go back to the previous state, which has some editing, I would click right here and that takes me back to where we were when we opened the Editing pane this time.
Then if I wanted to go all the way back to its original state, I would go Revert to Original. Now there's another way you can do that. We will add the Edge Blur again. So I have Revert to Previous, which allows me to back off the changes I've made during this session, or I can go up here and go Revert to Previous up here also. Now if you want to go all the way back it's easy enough to figure out. You click on Revert to Previous and it takes you back one step, and then this changes to Revert to Original.
If you had done three sessions, then you would have Revert to Previous, Revert to Previous, and Revert to Original. So I just wanted to show you the difference between those two buttons or how that button changes. Previous is the existing session, and Original is all the way back to its original state.
