Chapter 7. Fixing Exposure Problems

<feature><title>Lesson Overview</title>

You can use Photoshop Elements to fix images that are too dark or too light and to rescue photos that are dull, flat, or simply fading away. Start with Quick Fix and Guided Edit and work up to Full Edit mode.

In this lesson you’ll be introduced to a variety of techniques for dealing with exposure problems:

  • Brightening underexposed photographs

  • Correcting parts of an image selectively

  • Saving selection shapes to reuse in later sessions

  • Working with adjustment layers

  • Choosing layer blending modes

  • Using layer opacity settings

  • Enhancing overexposed and faded photographs

You’ll probably need between one and two hours to complete this lesson.
