Chapter 8. Editing Your Shots > Brightness/Contrast

8.5. Brightness/Contrast

No software can rescue a photo that was taken with very poor lighting, but a little time spent with the Brightness and Contrast sliders can make many photos look much more vivid, with deeper, more saturated colors. If the Enhance command (described earlier in this chapter) doesn't produce quite the results you were hoping for, you may be able to further improve the quality of your photo by adjusting these controls.

8.5.1. The Sliders

These controls are easy to use. Just drag each slider to the left or right to decrease or increase the overall brightness and contrast of a photo (see Figure 8-5). The results appear almost instantly, so you can experiment freely.
