Task: Fix a Badly Overexposed, Very Blue Photo

The photo shown in Figure 12.14 has a lot of things wrong with it. It actually looks as if the flash didn’t go off, or someone tried to shoot in the dark without one. It’s too dark and its colors are too washed out. It needs more saturation to bring out the colors, and it needs more light. It’s also too blue. Let’s try fixing it. In case you want to work along, you can find the picture (titled “Bridesmaids”) at this book’s page on the Sams Publishing Web site.
