Improve your snaps with just a few taps..
iPad already takes amazing photos, but capturing the perfect snap can be quite tricky without a little help. Getting the perfect level is tricky – even with the grid feature enabled when using the camera. Flashes can cause red eyes in photos, and sometimes we unwittingly capture an unwanted object or person without even knowing.
With just a few finger taps it’s possible to fix all of these problems, and it’s done via the Gallery app on your iPad. Read through the tutorial below to see how it’s done…
1. First steps
Select a photo that needs editing from the Gallery app. Next, tap the Edit button at the top of the screen. You’ll see a selection of buttons appear at the bottom of the screen.
2. Auto enhance
Tap the Enhance button and iPad will automatically boost colors if necessary, auto-correct the white balance, bright dark areas and enhance faces. If you’re happy with the result then tap the Save button at the top of the screen, otherwise the image can be reverted to its original state by tapping Undo at the top of the screen.
3. Red eye fix
If the flash has caused the dreaded red eye effect, then tap the third button from the left at the bottom of the screen. Next, tap on any red eyes in the photos and iPad will make them look natural again.
4. Crop and rotate
By tapping the Crop button you can eliminate unwanted areas of a photo, or rotate it to fix a wonky image. After tapping the Crop button, drag the handles on each corner of the image, then tap Crop again to save the image. To rotate an image while in Crop mode, simply use two fingers and rotate them slowly across the image.
5. Constrain an image
