Whether you are a casual or serious photographer, it's easy to use the iPhoto app to fix and enhance photos more to your liking right on your iPad 2 or iPhone.
Unlike iPhoto for your Mac, the app, takes advantage you will use the touchscreen to "paint" adjustments and affects on certain areas of a photo without changing the rest of the photo.
Note that the iPhoto app is compatible with the iPad 2, and new iPad. The app requires a camera and therefore cannot be installed on an iPad.
Here are the 11 best features in the iPhoto App with tips on how to use them.
Once you choose a brush adjustment, the brush will be highlighted. Paint the area you want adjusted first, then increase or decrease the intensity of the adjustment--"lighten" it more or less, blur more, choose degree of desaturation.
Click on the gears (setting icon) in the bottom right corner of the editing screen to display the options for the chosen adjustment. Turn on "show strokes" to see where you have brushed on the photo. Note that the strokes do not appear in the edited photo, rather they are meant to help you determine if you have covered the areas you want to adjust. To remove part of the brush strokes--thereby removing the affect to an area-- tap the eraser key next to the settings.
