Chapter 7. Working with Adjustment Layer... > Using the Dodge and Burn Tools

Using the Dodge and Burn Tools

You can also use the Dodge and Burn tools to lighten or darken specific areas of an image. If you wanted to lighten the shadow areas of an image, you would use the Dodge tool, and conversely, if you wanted to darken the highlight areas of an image, you would select the Burn tool. While there are other ways to control the highlights and shadows of an image, such as the Levels adjustment, the Dodge and Burn tools are controlled by using a brush and dragging in the image. That kind of control gives you the option to choose exactly what you want to modify.
