Lesson 8. Correcting and Enhancing Digit... > Correcting digital photographs

Correcting digital photographs

Photoshop contains a number of features that let you easily improve the quality of digital photographs. These include the ability to automatically bring out details in shadow and highlight areas of an image, easily remove red eye, reduce unwanted noise in an image, and sharpen an image. To explore these capabilities, you will edit a different digital image now: a portrait of a mother and a child.

Making shadow /highlight adjustments

The Shadow/Highlight command is suitable for correcting 8- or 16-bit RGB, CMYK, or Lab photos whose subjects are silhouetted against strong backlighting or are washed out from being too close to the camera flash. The adjustment is also useful for brightening areas of shadow in an otherwise well-lit image.
