Lesson 1. Bitmap Editing > Adjusting Levels

Adjusting Levels

Occasionally you may have bitmap images where you need to adjust the color values. Perhaps the image is too dark, too light, or doesn’t have enough contrast. The Levels dialog box enables you to adjust the shadows, the midtones, and the highlights of an image. For the candy image you’ve been working with in this lesson, you want to brighten the highlights of the pecans around the outside edges of the candy. You can do that using levels. You’ll restore the selection you saved around the candy, and then you’ll adjust the levels.

First, verify you are still in bitmap mode. Look at the bottom-right side of the document window. If you see a red circle with a white X, you are in bitmap mode. If the circle is dimmed, you are in vector or object mode.
