Chapter 8. Editing Your Shots > One-Click Fixes

8.1. One-Click Fixes

These are the original iPhoto editing tools, the ones that were present in the previous version and are nearly idiot-proof:

  • Enhance. With one click, this tool endeavors to make photos look more vibrant by tweaking the brightness and contrast settings and adjusting the saturation to compensate for washed-out or oversaturated colors.

  • Cropping. The cropping tool lets you cut away the outer portions of a photo to improve its composition or to make it the right size for a printout or Web page.

  • Retouch. This little brush lets you paint out minor imperfections like blemishes, freckles, and scratches.

  • Red-Eye. This little filter gets rid of a very common photo glitch—those shining red dots that sometimes appear in a person's eyes as the result of flash photography. Who wants to look like a werewolf if it's not necessary?

  • Black & White. Turns your color photos into moody black-and-white art shots.

  • Sepia. Makes new photos look faded and brownish, for that old-time daguerreotype look.
