    Default Radical Tinting or Brightening Slight Underexposure

    Hiee....

    Was toying with PS today and found another way to brighten up a little...under exposed shots....or even add tint of color to compensate some whitebalance problem....this is not a solution to any problem....but an ongoing exploration...

    well here is the steps.....try it out and let me know...

    1- Open the image
    2- Create a new layer
    3- Select paint bucket and choose the color - e.g white for brightening under exposed shots..., Black to darken overexposed image....color for tinting & white balance corrections..
    4- choose Overlay from the layers drop down menu - originally NORMAL.
    5- Use paint bucket and color top layer...
    6- You will see the top layer filled with the color choice
    7- Then adjust Opacity slider to "0%" - you will see original image as if the top layer is transparent...
    8- THen according to taste....adjust slider (increasing) value to taste....

    ........hope it will kick off some explorations......

    rgds,
    me

    Hey, cool!! this works!! But for severely under-exposed and over-exposed shots, it's almost irrepairable..

    Photoshop is just a tool for slight enhancement, or repair. It's still important to get a correctly exposed shot.
