Step 1: Choose an image
Double click on an image, then click on the Edit button at the bottom-right corner to open the Edit tools. From the menu at the top, choose Quick Fixes.
Step 2: Rotate the image
Click on the Rotate button and you can flip the image through 90 or 180 degrees. iPhoto is good at guessing the orientation of your pictures, however.
Step 3: Enhance your image
Click the Enhance button and iPhoto will add some sharpness, contrast and definition. If you don’t like the results, you can always hit the Undo button.
Step 4: Fix red-eye
Red-eye is a problem when a camera’s flash reflects in people’s eyes. Click on Fix Red Eye, then use the Size slider to match that of the affected area.
Step 5: Zoom in
If needed, use the zoom slider to zoom in to fix red- eye. The auto-fix option will detect and fix problems after recognising that a photo contains a face.
Step 6: Straighten a picture
The Straighten tool can help you to fix wonky images without changing the overall shape of the picture, which it does by zooming in slightly.
Step 7: Crop a picture
Cropping can help you focus on the main area of interest. Drag to set the area, or choose a preset size value from the drop-down menu under the tool.
Step 8: Retouch a picture
The subject may have a spot or blemish. Or, there’s dirt on the lens or a fly lands on your arm – all of these are things you can remove easily from a shot.
Step 9: Make the edit
Set the size of the tool to match the blemish. Click on it and iPhoto takes a sample of the area around it – usually skin tone – and paints it over the blemish.
