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.
This course was created and produced by Rich Harrington. lynda.com is honored to host this content in our library.
As you're working, you'll need to switch from one image to the next. I want to give you a couple of useful shortcuts to pull that off. One of my favorite ways is using the sorter across the bottom here. I could see all of my images, and that makes it easy to rotate. Now, I can also drag the scrubber bar, and that allows me to see all of the images. In this case, since I'm in an album, they're in the order that I arranged, and this makes it easy for me to quickly switch. You're seeing some images repeated here, because we're going to revisit a couple of the images a few times throughout our lesson.
Now, I can click on a thumbnail to switch. You'll see that it quickly switches to the next photo. You can also use the left and right arrow keys to navigate, and holding down one of those keys will fast scrub through the selected images. So, you can go quick or slow to find what you're looking for. Additionally, you can use the arrow keys at the top here to go ahead and navigate. If I want to, double-clicking will take me out of that view for the Edit mode, or I could go ahead and double-click again, and see a sorter view.
This makes it very easy to see all of the images in the album, and scroll through the list. There's lots of ways to navigate. It's a fairly straightforward process. Just be comfortable. The good news is, is I'm going to be going in a linear fashion today through the images in the library, so it should be pretty simple to keep up.
