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.
If your Lynda.com membership includes it, you'll find a collection of hands on exercise files that you can use. These are some of my personal photos from two recent trips. Feel free to use them for educational purposes, to get really hands on, and explore how these techniques work. I do ask the favor, though, that when you're done, you to discard the images. Please do not use these for any other purposes. All right. Once you've downloaded the files, and put them on your computer, you can launch iPhoto, while holding down the Option key. You'll see that you're presented with the option to select a library.
In this case, I'm going to use the Enhancing_Photos_Start. I choose that, and iPhoto opens with the images. At this point, we're going to explore, and to make more room for adjustments, I will go to full screen mode by clicking the Full Screen button. There are lots of techniques, so let's jump in, and start to learn iPhoto.
