No, you can't do this in iPhoto. But you can use the "Edit In External Editor" function of iPhoto to make the process easy.
after I copy the image in the photo and paste it in another photo. how do I shrink that photo that I copied? (when it's in the new photo)
Shrink in what way? Do you want the item you paste in to be smaller relative to the second image? Or do you now want to export it at a smaller size?
Great vid Gary. I wasn't aware preview was so versatile. it's a time saver now for me.
I agree -- I was always annoyed by "preview". Thanks Gary - I really enjoy your tutorial clips!
Thanks Gary- very helpful. I had no idea. Fun and useful
Thanks, Gary! I like to create joke-y birthday cards with heads from pictures pasted onto other images. Never realized how handy Preview was for that. I'm also interested in knowing whether you can re-size the "pasted" image - say, to adjust a head to be in proportion to the new "body" I pasted it on.
Keep those tips comin' !
You would have to resize the first image before cutting out the head. But maybe at that point it would make sense to move to a more full-featured image editing program like Pixelmator or Photoshop Elements.
If you paste the copied image into a Pages document, you can resize it by pushing or pulling the handles. You can also turn the image by command clicking a corner handle and press and drag to turn it
wow Gary you are for sure hidden Guru/Jewel
when i open preview I don't have the same tool bar and I can't find (from left) the box with the downwards facing triangle or the wand. can you help! I am using mavericks. thanks
Perhaps you have the tool bar turned off? Check in the View menu to "Show" it and also show the Edit Toolbar if you like.
Gary, this video is great! Thank you so much for showing how pictures can be cut out in Preview. I have watched this video several times as reference. Keep up the awesome work. All of us who watch thank you so much!
Do they have these tools in iPhoto? If not, do we have to remove a picture from iPhoto and back to Finder before editing it? thanks.
