Adjusting brightness and colors

In the Settings module, adjust the sliders on the different toolbars to optimize the rendering of your photo:

Temperature:

Move the slider to the left for cooler colors, and to the right for warmer colors.

Hue:

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.

 

Exposure:

Adjust the overall exposure of the image with the balancing value.

Luminosity:

Move the slider left to reduce luminosity, or right to increase it.

Contrast:

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.

 

Shadows:

Move the slider left to reduce the luminosity of dark tones, or right to increase it.

Highlights:

Move the slider left to reduce the luminosity of light or overexposed tones, or right to increase it.

Clarity:

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.

Saturation:

  1. Move the slider left to reduce color saturation, or right to increase
  2. To save the setting(s) applied to your photo, click the Save.
