Introduction to digital photo editing

  1. 1. Introduction to Digital Photo Editing ( iPad Camera Roll to PowerPoint ) S p r i n g D a l e Neighbourhood Centre Pierce Jaques ( Windows 7 & Office 2010 )
  2. 2. iPhoto (Image Details) All photos taken with the Camera App are saved using the following pattern: IMG_XXXX.JPG ( X being a numeral, 0 – 9 )
  3. 3. Manually Transfer Photos to PC ( Apple 30-pin to USB Cable )
  4. 4. Manually Transfer Photos to PC Click ‘Trust’ to allow your computer to access your iPad
  5. 5. Manually Transfer Photos to PC Your iPad will appear as a portable (storage) device
  6. 6. Manually Transfer Photos to PC Double-click each of the above icons (consecutively) to locate your iPads photos. This folder may be different on your iPad Note: this method will only copy photos (or videos) from the iPad’s Camera Roll to your PC; ensure that items you need to transfer are copied to the correct location (Camera Roll) on your iPad first – before you start.
  7. 7. Manually Transfer Photos to PC Copy any, or all, of the photos in this folder (on your iPad) and Paste the images into a folder on your PC – I use a folder on my Desktop called iPad Photos.
  8. 8. Renaming Photos in Batches ( Photos listed in Details view ) Like other digital cameras, the iPad names each photo incrementally. For example: IMG_0078, IMG_0080, IMG_0081, IMG_0082 etc… Note: gaps indicate deleted files.
  9. 9. Renaming Photos in Batches ( Medium Icons view ) Q: How can you tell which image is which? A: By renaming sets of images (within the same folder), you can sort photos into groups that belong together; e.g. Holiday, Workstation, Training, Family, Friends, etc. Note: the selected image is visible in the preview of the Details pane. ( Details view )
  10. 10. Renaming Photos in Batches ( Photos listed in Medium Icons view ) 1. Switch to Medium Icons (optional) 2. Use Shift (or) Control + Click to select a set of multiple files 3. Right-click on the first image in the set and select Rename 4. Replace the name, e.g. IMG_0117 with a new title e.g. Workstation 5. Each of the images selected will now be renamed incrementally as follow: • Workstation (1) • Workstation (2) • Workstation (3) • etc…
  11. 11. Renaming Photos in Batches ( Photos listed in Details view ) When sorted alphabetically the renamed set (series) of photographs should appear in the identical (original) incremental order!
  12. 12. IrfanView IrfanView download Plugins/AddOns IrfanView can be used for the following: • Resize by reducing the number of pixels • Resize by reducing the number of bytes • Crop images • Rename Photos (in batches) Note: I recommended installing both downloads!
  13. 13. IrfanView: Batch Renaming File Batch Conversion/Rename Batch conversion (screen)
  14. 14. IrfanView: Batch Renaming Batch conversion (screen) 1. Select Batch rename 2. Open the photo’s folder – e.g. iPad Photos 3. Change the view to Medium Icons (optional) 4. Select the photos you wish to rename (Shift | Ctrl + Click) 5. Click the Add button – or Add all, to rename all the photos in this folder 6. Click Browse and choose where to save the renamed files,e.g. Desktop>RENAMED 7. Select a pattern to use in the renaming process… Note: there does not have to be a folder called RENAMED (on the Desktop) before you run this program! 1 2 3 4 56 7 ( the selected image will be displayed on the left – as seen above )
  15. 15. IrfanView: Batch Renaming (Name Patterns) Batch conversion (screen) ( Name Pattern Options ) The default value is image### using this your photos would be renamed like this: image001, image002, image003 … image010, image011, image012, etc. Replace the word image with your own title, e.g. Workstation, and (once completed) the renamed files will look like this: Worksation001, Worksation002, Worksation003 … Worksation010, Worksation011, Worksation012, etc. 1.
