Hi, I'm Dan Reinecke with Unknown Media, and I'm here today to tell you how to edit photograph pixels. Pixels are the smallest piece of information in a photo. It refers to every single little dot within a photo. To edit by pixel by pixel we are going to need to jump into our photo editing software. Let's get to it. Alright, so this is the photo I'm going to use to show you how to edit pixels. Now we're going to go ahead and create a new layer, just a blank layer and I'm just for the sake of this going to just use a paintbrush. Now a pixel in order to edit it you're going to want to zoom in because a pixel is going to be represented by each one of these little squares. Each one of these is a pixel, so the larger your photo is, the more pixels you'll have. So in order to edit one, all you have to do is simply get down in there and change these. Now all I'm doing here, it may look like I'm just almost playing some kind of game but what I am doing is actually editing pixels, one by one. Now as you can imagine the bigger the photo is, the more pixels you're going to have so the longer you could honestly sit there and edit each and every one but now once we zoom back out, as you can see, they're just tiny little dots. And that's how you edit a pixel in your photographs. I'm Dan Reinecke, take your best shot.
