Entering Edit Mode


Since you can edit a photo in the display pane, in full screen mode, in a separate window, or in another application, it make sense that you can enter edit mode in several ways.

To choose how to edit photos:

1.

From the iPhoto application menu, choose Preferences ().

iPhoto opens the Preferences window. Click the General tab (Figure 4.1).

Figure 4.1. In the Preferences window, choose how you want iPhoto to react when you double-click a photo.


2.

From the Edit Photo pop-up menu, choose how you want iPhoto to edit photos by default.

3.

To use another program, choose In Application, and select a program in the Open dialog (Figure 4.2).

4.

Close the Preferences window.

Ways to enter edit mode:

  • Double-click a photo in organize or slideshow mode, or double-click a photo twice when making a book, calendar, or card.

    iPhoto switches to edit mode and displays the photo according to the setting in the Preferences window.

  • In organize mode, select one or more photos and click the Full Screen button under the display pane to edit the photos in full screen mode.

  • -double-click a photo in any mode to open the photo in either the display pane or a separate window, whichever is not the default in iPhoto's preferences.

  • -click a photo in organize mode, and choose one of the editing commands from the contextual menu that appears (Figure 4.3). Book mode offers a slightly different contextual menu.
