Real time editing in iPhoto for Mac OS X is a very user-friendly and convenient feature for photo editors. It can be done side-by-side editing mode, i.e., two photos can be viewed, compared and edited simultaneously while comparing them at the same time. The side-by-side editing feature often gets obscured among others on the Mac OS X series.

To begin with side-by-side editing, first of all you need to launch the iPhoto on your Mac. You will then have to click open the photos that you want to edit. Choose any two photos of your choice which can be done by holding down the Shift or Command key to select the sequential or non-sequential images respectively. The operating system will highlight your selected photos with a yellow highlight.

On the iPhoto you can locate the Edit button on the lower right corner. Once you are done with selecting the photos, you will need to click on this button to launch iPhoto’s Edit window. This will display both the chosen photos on the windows one beside the other. The image chosen as active will be denoted by a white patch. If you make any changes to the photo using the controls, it will be made to the one that is denoted by a white highlight. If you want the other photo to undergo the changes, click it to make active.

In the middle of the editing process, if you decide to change one of the two images, you can do so quite easily by choosing the photo that you want to swap. You can then use the image browser located at the bottom to choose a different image from the library. This can also be done by using the left and right arrow keys located on the upper right corner of the editing screen. If you require removing one of the photos from the editing screen, you can do it by clicking the ‘X’ on the top left corner of the picture.

Side-by-side editing works mostly for editing two photos at a time. However, you can also do it with more than two photos. All you need to do is to choose the number of photos that is to be compared and edited. The iPhoto will organize and accommodate them on to the editing window for the user to view it. By applying this method, you can compare and edit as many photos as you require.

The side-by-side editing functionality is a very useful one on Mac and is beneficial to multimedia professionals and general users alike. It allows you the dual task of comparing and editing two or more than two photos at the same time. You can edit as many photos as you want to. It is thus highly recommended for all users. So the next time you launch the iPhoto app, check if this useful tool is available. If it is not, make sure that you get it!
