Photoshop Adjust

Using Photoshop to Adjust the Tone

Photoshop has several ways you can adjust the tonal characteristics of an image:


Tonal Correction
Tonal correction is used to make the pixels within the image span a greater range of values from dark to light. It is especially useful for enhancing the mid-tone details as well as making things "brighter" without losing any detail. Getting more detail from your imagery adds more interest for the viewer.

Adjustment Levels

Take a photo at dusk or low light and another during high-noon in full sunlight. Save the originals somewhere safe (so we have "before" and "after" versions) and work on copies. Use your preferred technique (adjustment layers/curves/ levels) to enhance the copies so there is detail in the shadows and detail in the highlights.

Publish all 4 images as 72 d.p.i., 1024 pixels wide, RGB, 50 quality JPEG.
