Sometimes photos need a little tweak so that they show the moment as you remember it—making the sky a brighter blue or removing red eyes. The Photos app will make automatic corrections for you, or you can experiment with lighting and color adjustments, effects, and touch ups, plus cropping and rotating. Here are some options to get you started:
Let the app make the adjustments for you.
Make basic fixes, such as remove red eye, and retouch blemishes.
Adjust the light, such as changing brightness, contrast, highlights, and shadows.
Adjust the color, such as changing temperature, tint, and saturation. You can also pick a color and use Color enhance to adjust that color everywhere in the photo.
Add effects, such as darken or lighten the corners with Vignette and change the focus area with Selective focus.
Rotate your photos.
Crop your photos. You can chose from a list of options or adjust the size manually.
Open a photo. You can use the Photos, SkyDrive, or Camera app.
