“Picture perfect.” You’ve probably heard that phrase before: It’s used to describe anything that looks just right.

Most photographers know quite well, of course, that this phrase is misleading: Most pictures aren’t perfect. But just because a picture isn’t perfect doesn’t mean you have to give up on it. iPhoto has a wide assortment of tools that you can use to bring your pictures closer to perfection. You’ll get a chance to play with those tools in this lesson.
