Crop and clean up

If you didn't capture quite the image you wanted, you have the opportunity to digitally edit those images. Album gives you tools to rotate, crop, sharpen and fix red eye, contrast and color. See Chapters 11 and 12 for information about the tools at your disposal, all of which are quick and easy to use.

Remember that your print can only be as good as your original image. If the original image is flawed, so will be the print, as shown in Figure 14-12.

If you are scanning your images, you may want to especially consider sharpening the image. Flatbed scanners are notorious for producing soft images, and a little sharpening may be just the ticket.

Always make sure that sharpening is the last edit you make on your image. Album automatically saves your edited image as a new file, which is a wise move. That way you can always go back to the original if the need arises.
