iPhoto 6 hidden editing mode

iPhoto has a pretty good set of basic editing features but it is possible to go even further. iPhoto 6 has an hidden advanced editing mode.

When you are in the regular editing mode (just double-click any picture), you click on either "red-eye" or "retouch" and then you press at the same time on ctrl-caps lock-9. You are now in the advanced editing mode. You can change option using tab. Remember that you must be in either red-eye or retouch or nothing will happen when you enter the combination.

In the red-eye tool, you have two options, the usual cursor or an all new resizable cursor. To change the size of the cursor, you use the bracket. ] to increase and [ to decrease the size. You can also replace the red on red eyes by a lighter color than the usual dark grey by pressing and holding Shift before clicking.

With the retouch tool, you have three options, the usual cursor, a new resizable cursor and a lighten cursor. You can change the size of the cursor using the bracket in the same way than the red-eye tool. You can also change the intensity using } (increase) and { (decrease). Lighten works the same way than retouch, except that you cannot change the intensity.

See you tomorrow for another Mac tip.

Excellent tip.

Odd though: I was unable to get it to work. Tried and tried literally a dozen or so times.

Then poof! All of a sudden it began working each and every time!?
