26. Adjust Lighting – 3rd Approach

Although it appears that we don’t need yet another way to do the same thing – adjust the tones in an image, I find that each approach handles the picture differently.  What I did was use the same image and tried adjusting it with each approach as outlined in the blog posts beginning with #23, this gave me a better idea of how the approaches differ.

  • Select an image and be in Full Edit mode.
  • Menu bar: Enhance > Adjust Lighting > Shadows/Highlights
  • Dialog box appears with sliders giving a numerical value.
  • Move each slider one at a time and notice the differences to the image.  You can choose to adjust one slider, click OK and repeat the process for each of the three sliders or adjust all and select OK when you are please with the results.
Note of Caution – the Shadows/Highlights can easily be overdone giving you an image that doesn’t appear “real”.  Pay particular attention when you exceed a change greater than 10.
