There are many options for editing your photos and videos. Trim videos to keep only your favorite scenes. Delete the photos and videos you don't want. Quickly improve your photos with automatic enhancements or make more extensive changes. Photo editing options include:
Letting the app make the adjustments for you.
Basic fixes, such as cropping, rotating, removing red eye, and retouching.
Light adjustments, such as changing brightness, contrast, highlights, and shadows.
Color adjustments, 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.
Effects, such as darkening or lightening the corners with Vignette and changing the focus area with Selective focus.
These editing options are available in the Photos, SkyDrive
, and Camera apps. By default, File Explorer also opens image files with the Photos app. If you would like to make other edits, search the Windows Store on your PC for other photo and video editing apps.
