00:00:01,267 --> 00:00:02,802
Crop your photos

2
00:00:02,802 --> 00:00:05,972
You can crop a photo to focus
more attention on its subject

3
00:00:05,972 --> 00:00:09,309
and get rid of distracting or undesired elements.

4
00:00:09,309 --> 00:00:14,514
First click the photo you want to crop,

5
00:00:14,514 --> 00:00:17,317
click the "Edit" tool

6
00:00:17,317 --> 00:00:21,054
and then click the "Crop" button.

7
00:00:21,054 --> 00:00:25,091
Resize the box that appears
by dragging the corners

8
00:00:25,091 --> 00:00:27,694
or drag in the middle to move it
around as you enclose

9
00:00:27,694 --> 00:00:30,363
the best parts of your photo.

10
00:00:30,363 --> 00:00:32,766
You can limit the cropping box to certain dimensions

11
00:00:32,766 --> 00:00:35,702
by selecting "Constrain".

12
00:00:35,702 --> 00:00:37,771
Choose from many common sizes

13
00:00:37,771 --> 00:00:39,539
from standard screen sizes

14
00:00:39,539 --> 00:00:44,844
to popular photo sizes like 4x6 and 8x10.

15
00:00:44,844 --> 00:00:47,781
As you move the box, guidelines appear;

16
00:00:47,781 --> 00:00:51,718
these lines indicate the rule of thirds
as it's known in photography.

17
00:00:51,718 --> 00:00:54,687
Photos often look best if you
place your subject on a line

18
00:00:54,687 --> 00:00:57,424
or at the intersection of two lines.

19
00:00:57,457 --> 00:00:58,925
When you're happy with your crop

20
00:00:58,925 --> 00:01:01,828
the last thing to do is click the "Apply" button.

21
00:01:01,828 --> 00:01:04,664
From now on every time you see
this picture in iPhoto

22
00:01:04,664 --> 00:01:07,167
the crop you created will remain.

23
00:01:07,167 --> 00:01:08,735
And if you change your mind later

24
00:01:08,735 --> 00:01:10,737
the original photo is still there.

25
00:01:10,737 --> 00:01:12,238
You can always go back and re-crop

26
00:01:12,238 --> 00:01:15,141
a photo until it's exactly right.
