Task 5 How to Use the Dodge, Burn, and Sponge Tools

At times, you will want to lighten or darken an image only in selected areas. Although you could select an area and make changes only to that area (refer to Part 3), you might find the Dodge, Burn, and Sponge tools more effective. These tools allow you to brush your corrections onto an image: The Dodge tool lightens the image, the Burn tool darkens it, and the Sponge tool lets you saturate or desaturate the color intensity.

1. Select the Proper Tool

Open the image you want to affect. Click and hold the Dodge tool in the toolbox. A pop-out menu appears from which you can select the Dodge, Burn, or Sponge tool. Point to the desired tool and release the mouse button to select it.
