1 Page 1 Photo Editing in Mac and ipad and iphone Switching to Edit mode in Photos for Mac To edit a photo you ll first need to double-click its thumbnail to open it for viewing, and then click the Edit button at the top right. Note that if you open for editing a photo in a Shared Album you ll be told it needs to be imported into your photo library first, and that imported photo will be the one you ll edit rather than the shared version. Because every inch of screen space matters when you re editing photos, switching to full screen mode makes sense (click View > Full Screen, or the green blob). Pro tip: You might notice the toolbar slides off the top of the screen along with the menu. To fix this, click View > Always Show Toolbar in Full Screen. The screen goes black to indicate Edit mode is activated and the toolkit appears at the right of the program window, while a zoom control appears at the top left. When zoomed you can navigate around the image by clicking and dragging, or via a two-fingered scroll if using a trackpad. Pro tip: Holding down Cmd while tapping plus and minus on the keyboard lets you zoom in and out without using the mouse/trackpad.

2 Page 2 The zoom control at the top left lets you look closely at an image, and clicking and dragging will scroll around Non-destructive editing of photos on the Mac Photos uses non-destructive editing, which means the original is always stored alongside your edits, no matter how extensive these are or even if you quit the app after making them. Just open the photo for editing at any time and click Revert to Original. Warning: Undoing individual actions in Photos via Ctrl+Z, or Edit > Undo, isn t quite the same as other apps. Undos when editing an image are limited to the current tool you re working in. For example, if you alter the brightness and then switch to the Retouch tool, you won t be able to undo the brightness alterations you just made other than reverting to the original image as described above.

3 Page 3 If you find you re unhappy with any edits you can click Revert to Original at any time even after you ve finished editing, or even restarted your Mac Using the editing tools: enhance, rotate, crop, filter, adjust, & retouch There are six icons in the toolkit at the right of the screen and you can see what they are by hovering the mouse cursor over each. Some work via a single click, while others open an additional set of tools. All are pretty simple to use, though. Enhance: Auto-adjusts the color balance, brightness and contrast of your image. You re not given control over this. To control brightness, contrast, color etc you ll need the Adjust tool, discussed below. Rotate: Turns the image counter-clockwise 90 degrees. Holding down the Alt key (Option on some keyboards) switches it so it rotates clockwise 90 degrees. It s not possible to flip the image vertically or horizontally here, although these options are available on the Image main menu and in the Crop tool, described below. Crop: The least-accurately named of all the tools because, as well as dragging the frame to crop the image, this tool also lets you rotate the image to various small degrees just click and drag the dial at the right of the image. You can also flip it and adjust it to fit particular aspect ratios such as 3:2 or simply square by clicking the Flip or Aspect buttons at the bottom right. Adjusting the aspect ratio can help crop a photo slightly for printing via commercial photo printing outfits the popular 6x4in print size is 3:2 ratio, for example, while a standard iphone image is slightly larger at 16:9. The Auto button will attempt to automatically rotate and crop the image so lines within it (horizons, poles, walls etc) look straight. On other types of images, such as portraits, it has no effect.

4 Page 4 The Crop tool also lets you rotate an image by small degrees, as well as flip it and adjust its aspect ratio. Filters: Various readymade one-click filters that apply visual styles to your image, such as Mono, Instant, Chrome, and so on. Again, you have no control over any of them. Adjust: The meat of the editing tools, and discussed in more depth below. Retouch: Known as the heal tool in image editors like Photoshop, this lets you click (or click and drag over a wider area) to remove elements from an image such as skin blemishes. How it works is magical, as are the results, which are usually extremely impressive. However if you find it doesn t work quite as it should then holding down Alt (Option on some keyboards) and selecting a nearby point in the image for a sample will improve accuracy. Clicking the Reset button at the bottom of the screen undoes any edits you ve made using the Retouch tool. Making adjustments to your image using Light, Color & Black & White Clicking the Adjust tool opens a new set of controls alongside the image. By default three are shown: Light (combined brightness and contrast control), Color, and Black &

5 Page 5 White. Clicking and dragging the white bar within each control lets you make adjustments, although if you hover the mouse cursor over each you ll see an Auto button appear. This attempts to auto-adjust to the best settings based on the image data, as well as the Histogram graph shown above. Hovering the mouse cursor over the control also shows a down arrow that, when clicked, reveals more fine-grained options under the Light slider you ll see additional sliders for Exposure, Highlights, Shadows and so on. Clicking the Add button at the top right lets you reveal even more tools including some to sharpen the image, remove noise, and add a vignette effect. Perhaps the most useful for those used to Aperture or other pro-level tools is the Levels tool. Drag the handles beneath the levels histogram to adjust the darkest, lightest and mid-points of the image.

6 Page 6

7 Page 7 Clicking the down arrow alongside each control s heading shows finer-grained controls Advanced editing tricks in Photos Right-clicking on the image lets you copy to the clipboard the current set of edits you ve made, and you can then paste them onto a different image in the same way by rightclicking. This is useful if you find yourself correcting many images with a similar low-light fault, for example. Perhaps one of the best advanced tricks for using Photos is to hold down Alt (Option on some keyboards) while using any of the tools. Doing so while adjusting the cropping box will cause it to resize in a different way, for example, and doing so whilst adjusting the rotation dial will decrease the severity of your drag. Just give it a try! Edits made on one image and be copied and then pasted onto a different image just right-click and select the option

8 Page 8 How to Edit Your Pictures with Apple s Photos Application Photos was released as part of a larger OS X system update ( ). The app is meant to supplant iphoto as most Mac user s go-to photo application. As such, it s got quite a few basic but necessary photo-editing tools in it. We ve previously introduced Photos when we discussed how to move its library to a different location, as well as what every user should know about its icloud sharing settings. But up to this point, we ve not really talked about the application itself. When you first start using Photos on OS X for the first time, it doesn t become immediately apparent that you can edit with it. You still need to select a photo or photos and open them in editing mode. On the Photos view, everything will be arranged by date. This view only allows you to edit photos one at a time.

9 Page 9 The backwards arrows will let you take a much wider view of things, which is useful for quickly sorting through your library if you have a lot of content.

10 Page 10 If you click on the Albums view, then you can select All Photos (or any other album in which you ve sorted them). This is the easiest way to edit a group of photos, rather than having to select each one separately. In your All Photos album view for example, double-click on any photo to make it bigger. From here, you can use the arrow keys to move through your photos.

11 Page 11 Here, you see you can show or hide the split view, which displays all the photos in your album. Use the slider to zoom in or out. With a photo selected, there are options in the upper-right corner to mark it as a favorite, see its info, and most importantly, Edit it.

12 Page 12 Editing mode differs greatly from View mode however, you can still use the arrow keys to quickly move through your collection. Note, there are generally a lot of similarities between OS X s Photo s editor and ios s Photo s editor. Both share a single-click Enhance button, a Crop button, filters, adjustment options, and a Red-eye remover.

13 Page 13 Photos on ipad is a tad bit different than on a Mac, but not by much. Just about everything is the same except OS X s Photos separates crop and rotate functions, and adds a Retouch button, which gives you the ability to smudge out little blemishes and imperfections.

14 Page 14 When you edit your pictures, you can click the button Revert to Original to undo your changes, or click Done to exit and/or commit to them. Note, when you click Done you re not necessarily finished. You can still go back into the photo you just edited and revert to the original. Perhaps you want to edit your photos and save it as a new one. Click the File menu while you re viewing your photo (doesn t matter if it s in View or Edit mode) and select Export. You can then export that photo (or as many as you have selected) or the unmodified original(s).

15 Page 15 As you can see, using Photos to edit your pictures is really easy and it gives you enough tools to do all but the most advanced functions. Yes, they are very basic and won t approach the kind of power you have with applications like PhotoShop, Gimp, or even something like Picasa. But that s okay, just being able to do simple crops, or apply filters, or adjust brightness and contrast, is often more than enough for most of us. Best of all, and this is where the application really shines, whenever you make any changes, they are replicated across all your devices connected to your icloud account. This means that if you want to use your Mac to edit your photos quickly, your new changes will appear on your ipad, iphone, or ipod Touch. If you have any comments or questions you would like to offer, please leave your feedback in our discussion forum. How to use the new editing tools in Photos In ios 8 many more editing features have arrived inside the Photo app where previously ios 7 only offered a selection of preset filters and a cropping tool. You needed to use iphoto to do anything more advanced. The new editing tools make it easier to be more creative with your photos. Apple is also allowing users to make use of third party filters and effects without having to open and close apps.

16 Page 16 Now you can crop, straighten, remove red eye, adjust lighting and contrast and more. Just open Photos and select the image you wish to edit. Now tap Edit > and pick the crop, filter, or saturation tool. Read: Best ways to back up photographs

17 Page 17 How to crop an image on the iphone or ipad Choose your image. Tap Edit. Now tap the square Crop icon. The interface here is a little different to ios 7, you need to tap the icon on the right that looks like different shaped boxes. Now you can pick the constraints of your crop. Tap Done when you are happy.

18 Page 18 Editing mode is much different from view mode. When you click Edit,, the application turns dark and tools appear along the right edge of the window.

19 Page 19 How to straighten an image on the iphone or ipad Do you have a photo that needs straightening up? This is often the case when you photograph water and then find it looks like the water is going to run out of the image because it s on a slant. ios 8 makes this edit easy. Tap the Crop icon and you will see a new dial appears below the image, turn this dial until the lines that it draws over your image look in line with the horizon.

20 Page 20 How to add more color to an image on the ipad or iphone To change the color saturation of an image tap the dial icon and pick Color. You can drag the slide up (or to the right depending on the orientation of your device) to add more color to the image. You can do even more here. Tap the three lines and you can see what the Saturation, Contrast and Cast levels are. To increase contrast, tap Contrast, then move that slide until you are happy. We were able to get a nice blue sky this way.

21 Page 21 Finally we looked at Cast and moved the slider until we were happy with the white of the clouds in our image. Adjust the brightness of an image taken on your ipad or iphone You can also adjust the Light levels. Options include Exposure, Highlights, Shadows, Brightness, Contrast and Black Point.

22 Page 22 Find the image you wish to edit. Tap Edit. Select the dial icon and pick Light. You could drag the slide up for a more ethereal feel to your image. Tap the three line icon to access the additional settings. Turn down Exposure to see more of the sky. Drag down Highlights to see more sky. Pull up Shadows to see more of what s in the shade. Pull up Black Point to get deeper blacks.

23 Page 23 Choosing a filter for an image on your iphone You don t have to use all these sliders to get the perfect image. Apple has a number of preset filters available. These were also available in ios 7. Find your image and select Edit. Tap the three circles at the bottom of the screen. Select the filter you like from: Mono, Tonal, Noir, Fade, Chrome, Process, Transfer, Instant.

24 Page 24

25 Page 25 You can also add filters to the photo when taking it. Tap on the three circles in the bottom right corner when you open the Camera app.

26 Page 26 Undo photo edits on the iphone or ipad Find the image. Tap Edit, then tap Revert to revert the image back to the original. You can do this at anytime as they are nondestructive edits. If you wanted to keep the before and after image you could screen grab the edited image before reverting to original.

27 Page 27 Edit a photo not stored on your iphone or ipad If you are sharing images via icloud you will see the image, but the phone will warn that you need to Duplicate the image before you can Edit it. This is presumably because the edits will not apply to the original image at least not until Apple launches Photos on the Mac.
