  • Using a photo editor

    In this course, we're going to practise using a typical photo editor. We've created our very own Squirrel Editor interactive practice activities so you can hone your editing skills in a safe environment. If you make a mistake, it doesn't matter, you can always have another go! While Squirrel Editor might look a little different to the app on your device, you should still be able to follow along.

    The first activity in this course Photo editor basics – describes the key tasks covered in the practice activities.

    As there is a lot of detail to see in photo editing, the practice activities themselves are viewable on laptops, desktops and tablets only. Each activity focuses on specific editing options you encounter when editing photos. They include:

    • Selecting and preparing an image
    • Brightening an image
    • Fixing a blemish
    • Optimising an image size and saving your work.
