Apple Photos Course 4: Editing Photos

Editing photos - adjustments, filters, cropping and more


  • You want to make color adjustments to your pictures
  • You want to retouch or crop out unwanted elements
  • You want to make creative edits with filters and adjustment tools
  • You want to improve the composition through cropping

You love your photos. Your iPhone is always there to take beautiful pictures of your family and friends and the moments you want to save every day.

When you unboxed that iPhone for the first time, you became a photographer. You thought to yourself, "This is so cool!"

But after you've snapped a pic, sometimes it's not quite right... If you could just make a few changes, it would be perfect! But how do you use the editing features on your phone and computer to get the effect you're after?

When you got your iPhone, you knew it could do amazing things with your Photos.... so why is it so hard to make it do what you want it to do? Where are those bold, creative, stunning shots you know are possible somehow?

Have you ever found yourself wishing you could make Apple Photos work the way you thought it would? Why do other people's photos look so professional when yours are just "okay"?


Some people will say you should give up on the whole Apple ecosystem because it's too complicated. Or they might tell you that only professional photographers can make really great pictures with an iPhone.

Nonsense. And here's why...

As a lifelong photographer, an iPhone owner since day one, and a former Apple Genius, I can tell you that none of the other systems offer anything close to the complete iPhone to photobook experience that Apple does.

With only the iPhone and mac computer you already own, your photos can look as creative as you want them to be. Discover the power of editing with Apple Photos.

Photography has been a part of my life since I picked up a camera in high school. Along the way I was a travel and outdoor sports photographer, worked in the printing industry, and was an early Photoshop adopter. I've represented some of the leading digital photography studios before joining Apple as a member of both Genius and Creative teams. Throughout my career I have trained clients and the public on photography, digital photo organizing, desktop publishing and Apple software applications. I love working with people to delight and empower them through the creative use of technology.


You know how to take photos, find them, and keep them organized (covered in course 1, course 2, and course 3 of Apple Photos Start to Finish) But once you know how to take pictures, editing them is what takes your photos to the next level.

In this course, you'll learn how to edit your photos on iOS and Mac, including cropping, adding filters, sharpening, and making adjustments to the white balance, definition, and more. I'll also give you an overview of the third-party editing apps that are available and how to use them.
