Before you get started, there are a few settings that I would like you to adjust on your iOS device. The grid allows you to use the Rule of Thirds when taking pictures. The High Dynamic Range (HDR) setting gives you the ability to save both HDR and regular pictures in your camera roll. Please note that this will take up more space on your device.

This is a VERY simple overview of editing a picture on the iPhone. Every have a picture that you wanted to share but needed to tweak it a little? Here are a few tips to help you put your best face forward.

  1. Correct the color of the image with the Auto White Balance (AWB) options.
  2. Correct the exposure.
  3. Clean up the skin. Smooth out blemishes or repair them with the band aid.
  4. Get the red out! Brighten the whites and remove red eye if necessary.
  5. Sharpen the eyes and if necessary, make the irises more vivid with brushes.
  6. Brush those pearly whites. Reduce yellow or lighten them if necessary.
  7. Compare before and after as you work and when done, share your picture.

PLEASE NOTE! Less is more! Less is more! Less is more! The first time I played around with this technique, my pictures looked like sparkling air brushed vampires! At least all of the edits in iPhoto are non destructive!

Have FUN and be sure to share!

Here is a video created from photos that I took on my iPhone at Photowalk Amelia last summer. This was posted as a little promo video for the next walk to get people excited. I used the 'Simple' theme.

This is a trailer created with the same set of images. Notice how the music and words create a completely different effect. Trailers can be created with videos and or images. You can use items in the photo album or take them as you go. Use the template's storyboard as your guide.
