Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting images, part of iBooks Author for Teachers: The Basics.
If you place images into your project and you're not happy with them in terms of…color or contrast, you may not have to leave iBooks Author and go to work in a…separate image editing application.…Apple has included a set of controls to adjust the look of your images in a very…flexible and intuitive manner. Let's take a look.…To open the Adjust Image controls, choose View > Show Adjust Image, or press the…button with the sliders in the Format bar.…You can adjust the Brightness and Contrast of an image with the sliders at the…top, or the Exposure and Levels controls down at the bottom.…
The Saturation slider lets you make colors more vibrant or more muted and…grayish, and you can use the Temperature and Tint sliders to emphasize certain…colors, remove an unwanted color cast, or totally colorize an image.…With the Sharpness slider, you can bring out the detail in an image, or give it…a soft focus effect.…And down here at the bottom, there's an Enhance button. If you click that,…iBooks Author will give its best guess and try to improve the image for you.…
