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.

Once you zoom in really far, it's easy to lose perspective of where you are in the image. Fortunately, iPhoto offers a useful window to help you out. If I zoom in here, you'll see that the Navigation window is open. Now, you can go ahead and reposition this on the screen wherever you need by just simply dragging. Let's go to 100% magnification. This is showing me the image as it looks here, and notice I could drag that box to move around.
This makes it easy to just move through parts of the image, while staying at the tighter magnification. So if I want to quickly pan to see different parts of the image, I don't have to guess; I can just drag exactly to that spot. So, using the Navigation window offers some useful help in really keeping track of where you are within the image.
