Editing Images

Three of the most common image editing tasks are cropping, resizing, and removing red-eye from photos. In the following sections, I'll briefly explain the basics of each, using Adobe Photoshop CS. These basic processes should be applicable to most other image editing programs.  

I'll also go over batch processing, a valuable time-saver when applying the same edits to large numbers of files.  

Other common editing tasks, such as adjustments to exposure or color balance, can be performed either when you scan the image, or later when you use an image editor.
