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.
