Although a photograph is an accurate record of a specific moment in time, there's no particular reason why you have to "remember" the flaws your camera captured as well: the slightly yellow teeth, the blotchy skin, the wrinkles, and the wind that blew everyone's hair out of place. Using the Editor's tools, you can erase these flaws or simply make them less noticeable. For example, you can remove red eye, wrinkles, freckles, and minor blemishes. You can even whiten teeth and awaken tired eyes. In this chapter, you'll learn how to perform these and other digital tricks while maintaining the essential loveliness and inner beauty of your subjects, so that when you post the pictures online, the world will see them as you know they truly are.
