Step 1: Get editing
Double-click on the photo you want to use in iPhoto, then click on the Edit button in the bottom-right of the interface. A new sidebar will spring into life on the right of the interface.
Step 2: Tab it up
On the top-right of the new sidebar there are three tabs. We want the Adjust section so click on that tab to reveal a host of sliders and colour- correction tools.
Step 3: Get tooled up
Next to the temperature settings is the Eyedropper tool. Click on it to begin using it. At the bottom of the screen a brief description will appear and your cursor will change to a crosshair.
Step 4: Get clicking
You can now click anywhere on the photo and the tint and temperature will change as iPhoto tries to balance the colours. The results can be subtle or extreme. It’s a great way to alter your pics.
