Summer time is vacation time for those who have been working hard. With kids out of school for the warmest months of the year, families travel to amusement parks, historical sites, and even to other countries, making memories along the way. What better way to store the photographic memories from this summer’s vacation than with high quality photos, edited, stored, and shared with just your iPad and iPhoto? Now the Unlock iPhone Fast will present the best ways to use iPhoto for iPad.
While the built in Photos app can do some basic things like rotating photos or sorting them into albums, most of us have wished we have chances do a few more basic tweaks to our photos before we send them off to be printed or shared with friends and family.
Now that it is vacation time for a lot of families, we think it’d be great to run through some basic photo editing tips using Apple’s own iPhoto for the iPad, for easy yet powerful editing on the go. First up, the iPhoto for iPad app is $4.99, which is surely not going to break the bank. Included with iPhoto are many of the pro-summer level effects that should meet the needs of most, if not all, non-professional photographers. Download the app from the App Store right away to follow along step by step.
Cropping photos well is a basic yet underutilized editing technique that most photographers do first. In iPhoto, tap the photo you’d like to crop and tap, well, the Crop button in the lower left of the screen. Touch the image, then, to crop it. You can twist your fingers to rotate the photo, tap and drag the crop handle by its edges. Next, pay attention to color correction is another quick way to make good images great. Select a photo, and then tap the palette icon in the lower left of the screen.
Photo editing is all about making changes to the visual image, using your own aesthetic preferences to make the picture just that much better than the original. With some simple tricks in iPhoto for iPad, you can make that good photo better, and that great photo sing with the help of brightening, zooming and white balance. You may brighten your photos in two ways. First of all, you can adjust the brightness of the entire photo. Launch iPhoto and choose the photo you’d like to make brighter, or darker, if that’s your thing. Tap the Exposure button in the lower left.
After you have edited your photos you must share them the right way. Simple sharing, via email, Facebook, Flickr, and Twitter is built right in to iPhoto for iPad. Tap and select a photo to share it, or tap and hold many photos to select more than one. Or simply tap the gear icon and then tap “Select Multiple…” You’ll be able to tap more than one photo in the column n the left of iPhoto. All the photos you chose will show up in the main window, tiled if multiple selections. Hit the sharing button, which is the standard iOS sharing button in the upper right, the third from the right next to the Edit button.
