Fixing a picture means improving the quality of that picture by adjusting brightness, contrast, hue, color saturation or any combination of the above. Canon Photo Editing Software offers three ways to fix a picture: QuickFix is a completely automated process that analyzes the picture and quickly adjusts it to be brighter with more contrast. SmartPix allows you to provide information about a picture and then directs Canon Photo to apply enhancements based on your descriptions. You describe such criteria as: the particular camera or scanner used to capture the image; whether the photo was taken indoor or outdoors; the lighting conditions that existed when the picture was taken. Fix by Example allows you to see multiple representations of a single picture with different levels of brightness, richness, color and/or sharpness, side-by-side. You simply choose the representation that most closely matches the fix you have in mind.
