Intro

No matter how good a camera you possess, some judicious editing can always help to improve on the final result.

You might want to make the colours and contrast stand out. Sometimes a small crop is all that’s needed to make a good picture fantastic. If all your subjects have the dreaded red-eye, you’ll want to get rid of that.

Thanks to the power of the dual-core A5 chip inside the iPhone 4S, your phone is a powerful image-editing tool. It can also help you with some of the usual pitfalls of photography. You can remove red-eye quickly and simply. As well as this, there’s a crop tool that lets you cut out the best bit of a photo and re-frame your shot for a better result.

If you want to take image editing further, you can download any number of apps to help you do more with your pictures, too.

Step 1: Start editing

Go to your images in Photos and tap the one you’d like to edit. Tap Edit. The available tools are displayed across the bottom of the screen. You can rotate, enhance, remove red-eye and crop your image. Tap one to get started.

 

Step 2: Rotate your pictures

Let’s start with rotation. If you’ve taken a picture at a funny angle, or just want to have some fun with a picture, this is ideal. Tap on Rotate at the bottom left to spin your image around and around.

 

Step 3: Enhance your images

The iPhone has an easy Enhance mode that improves the colour and contrast of your images automatically. Tap the magic wand icon (the second icon from the left) to enhance your photos: simple as can be.

 

Step 4: Fix red eye

If you use the flash on your iPhone, nasty red-eye can ruin your best shots. Tap the red-eye button and then on the ‘infected’ eye. Tap each of the eyes to remove the red circle. When done, tap on Apply to save your changes.

 

Step 5: Crop images

To crop images, tap on the Crop tool (the pair of right angles) then drag in the corners of the grid to suit. You can move the crop box around until you find the best fit. Tap Crop at the top when you’re finished.

 

Step 6: Constrain crop

You don’t have to use the standard crop box on your images. Tap Constrain at the bottom of the screen to see the various crop ratios you can select for your photos. This is a great help when printing.
