Here are the steps we’ll do together…

  1. Select one of your photos from your recent photo shoot to experiment with and duplicate the photo like the article mentions in section 2.
  2. Open the photo editor (section 3) and select Adjust icon. Go through EVERY adjustment tool discussed in section 4, beginning with “Auto”. Use the slider in each tool to go far left then far right before you put it back at zero (0). Then move on to the next adjustment tool. This allows you to see what each particular adjustment tool does!
  3. You can also explore the filters, but I recommend taking control of your own editing.
  4. Section 6.2 and 6.5 shows you how to straighten and crop your photos.


Uploading photos to OneDrive must be done where you have decent reception or Wifi.
