Edit Photos - Overview

Before you print or share your photos, you can correct imperfections and add fun tints.

Use the edit and enhancement tools to:

  • Remove red-eye
  • Add borders
  • Crop (trim) your photo
  • Correct the color in your photo
  • Rotate and/or flip your photo
  • Fill flash (lighten areas that are too dark)
  • Add tints

After using one photo tool, you can choose to use other tools in the same session. For example, after cropping a photo, you can then correct its color.

When you save your changes, you can save the corrected photo with a slightly different name so you will still have easy access to the original.

If you edit a photo in an album you have shared, your friends will also see the changes (unless you move the edited photos into another album).

Please note: You can only edit photos in your own albums, and your friends will not be able to edit your photos, even if they are shared.

To begin editing or enhancing a photo, follow these steps:

  1. From your photo library, an album or an individual photo page, click "Edit & Organize" in the blue menu on the right side of the page.
  2. Tip: If you begin on an individual photo page, you won't have to choose your photo later.

  3. Select "Fix & Enhance" from the list of options.
  4. If you began on an album page or in your photo library, select the photo you'd like to edit.
  5. On the following page, you'll see the photo you selected and various icons and tabs next to it. Select the action you'd like to take and follow the on-screen instructions.

Note for Macintosh users: The editing tools built into the Walmart Digital Photo Center site are not compatible with Macintosh operating systems. You can still use our site to create gifts and share and order prints; however, if you need to edit photos, please do so with other editing software before you upload them to your online photo album.

Save Changes

Before you learn how to fix and enhance your photos, it's important to understand how these photos are saved in your account.

Whenever you edit one photo and click Next to edit another, without selecting a method for saving before you move on, the Photo Center saves the edited photo as a replacement of the original.

If you'd prefer to save the edited version as a copy, click "as a copy" on the right side of the screen. The Photo Center will create a copy of the photo with your new edits, using a slightly different caption (for example, "mom's birthday(2)"). Your photo album will contain both the original and edited versions of the photo.

Cancel Changes

If you want to discard all your changes while you are working on a photo, click the white Cancel button at the top or bottom of the page. You will have two options:
  • Revert to last saved: Erase any changes made during the current editing session.
  • Revert to original: Erase any edits made since you uploaded the photo.

Remove Red-Eye

Use red-eye reduction when the people in your photographs appear to have red-colored pupils. This often appears in photos taken with a flash.

The "Remove Red-Eye" tool neutralizes the red, while retaining original eye color as much as possible.

Please note: The Remove Red-Eye tool does not help reduce white flash reflection. It only works on the color red.

  1. From your photo library, an album or an individual photo page, click "Edit & Organize" in the blue menu on the right side of the page.
  2. Tip: If you begin on an individual photo page, you won't have to choose your photo later.

  3. Select "Fix & Enhance" from the list of options.
  4. If you began on an album page or in your photo library, select the photo you'd like to edit.
  5. Click the blue Fix tab to the right of your photo.
  6. Click the "Remove Red-eye" icon.
  7. Click one of the red eyes in the photo. Keep clicking until you remove all of the red.
  8. Repeat for each eye you want to fix.
  9. Check your results by clicking "Before/after."
  10. The change will be applied unless you click "Start Over" at the bottom of the box or "Revert to last saved" below the small photo at the bottom of the page.

Add Borders

A border can add life to a photo, provide context or help turn it into a fun photo gift.
  1. From your photo library, an album or an individual photo page, click "Edit & Organize" in the blue menu on the right side of the page.
  2. Tip: If you begin on an individual photo page, you won't have to choose your photo later.

  4. If you began on an album page or in your photo library, select the photo you'd like to edit.
  5. Click the blue Borders tab to the right of your photo.
  6. Click any of the listed borders to see how it looks.
  7. The last border you click will remain unless you click "Remove Border" at the bottom of the box or "Revert to last saved" below the small photo at the bottom of the page.

Crop Photos on Products

When you create a photo gift, the Walmart Digital Photo Center website often automatically crops (trims) your photo to fit the gift. Some photo gifts require this, because they use a square version of a photo.

Whenever you create a photo gift, we'll let you know whether or not we've cropped it. If we have, you'll see an orange indicator reading "Your photo has been cropped to fit your gift." At this time, you can leave the crop as it is, or you can change the crop (or rotate the photo) to the way you prefer it.

If you prefer you can manually crop your photos so you can control what gets trimmed.

Cropping a photo while creating a product or item will only crop the photo for that item; it will not affect how the photo is displayed in your albums.

Crop a Photo for a Single-Photo Product or Gift

The following steps describe how to crop or trim a photo to fit on a photo product or gift that uses a single photo. The cropping process is slightly different for products that include multiple photos, such as coasters and calendars. Learn more about cropping for multiple-photo gifts.

Note for Macintosh users: Cropping is not available for Mac users.

  1. From your Digital Photo Center home page, click the Shop tab at the top of the page.
  2. Select the item you'd like to order.
  3. Once you have selected your product, you will see a page called "Create Your _____". This page will show the product you have selected next to an empty square reading "Choose your photo below."
  4. At the bottom of the page is a line of photos from your most recently viewed album. Click the photo you would like to use. If the photo you'd like to use for this gift is in another album, click "Display a Different Album."
  5. Often, we will automatically crop your photo to fit the gift. If we do, you will see "Your photo has been cropped to fit your gift" in orange text above your photo.

  6. Click "Crop or Rotate" beneath your photo to show the picture inside the cropping tool.
  7. Click and drag the edges of the green rectangle, or click and drag in the center of the photo, to change how your picture is cropped.
  8. You can also rotate your photo by clicking the Left or Right buttons under "Rotate," to the right of your photo.
  9. When you have the crop the way you want it, click Done Editing.
