Red Eye and Cropping
The most common fix to any image is removing red eye from images. Red eye is caused when your flash or surrounding ambient light causes a red reflection in your subject’s eye. To correct this problem using the Windows 7 Windows Media Center, follow the below steps:
- Go to the Start screen, and then go to Pictures + Videos.
Open up the Picture Library.
- Right-click on the picture that you need to change.
- In the dropdown menu, select Picture Details.
- Go to Touch Up and then Red Eye.
- Select Save, and Windows Media Center will correct the red eye problem in the image.
Another issue that many people have with images is that the picture is the wrong angle. While you can crop out the edges of the image so that it sits straight, you also lose the rest of the image. It works better to actually rotate the image to straighten it.
You can do this in the Windows Media Center. Navigate to the image, and right-click on it. Go to Picture Details, and select Rotate.
The image rotates at 90 degree angles. You can only rotate the image 90 degrees at a time and not in incremental degrees. If your image is completely upside down, you may have to click the button more than once until it’s in the correct position.
If you over-rotate the image, simply keep hitting the rotate button until it is back in the correct position.
If you do need to crop an image, go to the Touch Up menu, and select Crop. With this tool, you can change the size, orientation and location of the image. When you are done, simply hit Save to save all of your changes.
