Task 4 How to Improve Contrast with Shadow/Highlight

Shadow/Highlight is an extremely smart set of controls that enables you to brighten shadows and darken highlights simultaneously, controlling the tonal range affected and the overall intensity of the effect. With these controls, you can increase image contrast in the shadows or highlights without significantly sacrificing contrast in the other tonal regions.
