Comparing Photos

It’s always smart to take more than one version of an important shot—to experiment with different exposure settings or to simply increase your chances of capturing that perfect smile.

To Compare Photos

Comparing in edit view. If you’re already working in full-screen edit view (opposite page), hold down the Command (image) key and click the thumbnail of the photo you want to compare to the one you are editing. iPhoto loads it and displays both side-by-side.
