Chapter 8. Editing Your Shots > Adjusting the Levels

8.13. Adjusting the Levels

After you've spent some time working with the middle tones of your picture, you can turn your attention to the endpoints on the histogram, which represent the darkest and lightest areas of the photo.

If the mountains of your graph seem to cover all the territory from left to right, you already have a roughly even distribution of dark and light tones in your picture…so you're probably in good shape. But if the graph comes up short on either the left (darks) or the right (lights) side of the histogram, you might want to make an adjustment.
