Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Lightening and darkening specific areas, part of iPhoto for iOS Essential Training.
…Now that we've seen the repair and red-eye brushes in action,…I'm going to start looking at the rest of these brushes in pairs.…So next we have the lighten and darken…brushes, and they do exactly what their names imply.…They allow you to selectively lighten or darken specific areas of your photos.…For example, in this photo, my face is mostly in shadow.…I want to bring it out a little bit more.…So I'll select the lighten brush.…And to use it, I'll zoom in a bit.…And now I'll just use my finger and rub back and forth over my face.…The more you rub, the stronger the effect, so…that's probably a little bit too strong, let's undo that.…
I'll just go over my face once or twice.…So that's a little better.…But if you look closely, you can see that I accidentally lightened part of…the hat I'm wearing as well as a little bit of the collar down here.…So let's undo that again.…Now I could try lightening my face while being a…little more careful to not touch the hat or collar.…But an easier way is to tap this button down here, which is called Detect Edges.…
