How to > View and edit pictures
When you get a closer look at your pictures, what sort of fixes and enhancements need to be made? Perhaps some were taken using a flash, and the subjects have a case of “red eye.” Maybe a few of them could use cropping to remove some distracting objects in the background. Others might benefit from a soft-focus effect, or you may wish to add a border to make your prints look more stylish.
Select the pictures you’d like to edit by clicking on a thumbnail until an orange box appears around it. To de-select, click the check mark in the upper-left of the thumbnail.
If you’d like to make enhancements to every picture in the album, select “all” at the top of the main work area. Select “none” to remove checks from every image.
Next, go to the “Edit” pulldown menu in the upper-left corner of the workspace and select one of the bottom four options. You’ll notice there are two arrows on the right side of the page. Click on these to scroll forwards and backwards through the series of selected pictures.
To see how your crop looks, click the “Print Preview” button below the large thumbnail. Remember, you can always choose the “Revert to original” link on the right side of the page to undo the changes.
With “Simple” style, you can adjust the width of the borders and trim your picture to make the border an even width. With other styles selected, use the buttons at the bottom of the tab to zoom in and out on your picture, and use the arrows to place the image the way you want it.
Click the “Return to Album” button in the upper-left to lock in your border. If you’d like to apply the border you’ve chosen on any picture to other selected pictures in your album, click “Apply this border to this set of pictures” on the right. Undo any border by selecting “Revert to original.”
