Photo Editing Step One: Make a Copy To find Picture Manager Start/Microsoft Office/Microsoft Office Tools/Microsoft Office Picture Manager Everyone has this program Basic edits only, nothing fancy!
Editing Photos Brightness and Contrast Color Crop Rotate and Flip Red Eye Removal Resize/Compress Pictures
Brightness and Contrast Can help lighten when youre too far away for the flash to reach your subject Can help darken when youre too close and the flash overexposes your subject Start with AutoBrightness Brightness – the lightness of the colors Contrast – the difference between the lightest and darkest colors Midtones – the colors in between (what contrast doesnt fix)
Color Enhance Color button – fixes colors using white as a benchmark Amount and Hue – work together to affect the base color Saturation – move to the left to make image black/white, move to right to intensify colors
Resize/Compress A must for sending pictures over e-mail or for uploading to websites 3 MB is great for printing, but overkill for looking at images on a computer screen Make a copy first, you cant zoom in after youve resized Document – 1024 x 768 or 800 x 600 Web – 640 x 480 or 448 x 336 E-mail – 314 x 235 or 160 x 160 Original: 3.14 MB 3000 x 1996 Resized: 309 KB (0.3 MB) 1024 x 681
