How to Edit Pictures on Your iPad

iPad's iOS includes a welcome quartet of photo-editing tools: Rotate, Enhance, Red-Eye, and Crop. To use any of these tools, tap the Edit button in the upper-right corner of the iPad screen, and a toolbar with four buttons appears at the bottom of the screen.

  • Rotate: Tap to turn the image a quarter-turn counterclockwise.

  • Enhance: Tap to improve the lighting, contrast, and color balance of the image. Tap Enhance again to remove the effect.

  • Red-Eye: Tap to enable, and then tap on the red eye in the image. Tap again to undo.

  • If what you tapped didn’t look like a red eye to the tool, it will politely inform you that it did not find a red eye to correct.

  • Crop: Tap to crop or straighten the image. Tap the corners of the overlay to set the cropping area; tap the Constrain button to make the cropped image conform to popular proportions such as 5 x 7, 8 x 10, 4 x 6, and so on.

If you’ve applied more than one of the tools to your image, you can use the Undo button in the upper-left corner to step backward through time, undoing one step for each tap. Or, tap the Revert to Original button to remove all the improvements at once.
