Adjusting brightness and colors
In the Settings module, adjust the sliders on the different toolbars to optimize the rendering of your photo:
Move the slider to the left for cooler colors, and to the right for warmer colors.
Move the slider left to add green to the photo, or move it right to add magenta. This setting acts like a filter.
Practical example: The light from the candles can tint a photo red; add a green hue to counteract this effect and make a photo look more natural.
Adjust the overall exposure of the image with the balancing value.
Move the slider left to reduce luminosity, or right to increase it.
Move the slider left to intensify dark tones, or right to intensify light tones.
The following example illustrates the various settings: reduce Shadows, lower
Contrast, increase Clarity and force Saturation.
Move the slider left to reduce the luminosity of dark tones, or right to increase it.
Move the slider left to reduce the luminosity of light or overexposed tones, or right to increase it.
Move the slider left to reduce contrast and sharpness, or right to increase them.
Practical example of landscapes: A positive value on the Clarity slider reduces the blurred effect. This effect is particularly effective when applied to a landscape photo.
Practical example of portraits: A negative value on the slider Clarity creates a particularly effective soft effect when applied to a portrait, as it smooths the skin tones.
