How to Change Brightness and Contrast an Image Using Photoshop
Do you have an almost perfect picture that is just a little to bright or dark to be exactly the way you want it? There is a way to fix this in Photoshop.
First open Photoshop and the picture you want to fix the lighting of. Make sure you re-save this picture so you do not change the original.
Once the picture is opened, click on “image” which should be listed on the top bar on a mac. Then, click on adjustments and then on brightness/contrast.
Move the arrows across the line to make the picture lighter or darker. You will see the picture getting lighter or darker right away if you click on the “preview” box.
Here you can also fix the contrast, which does not make the picture lighter or darker but changes how the colors in the picture compare to each other. This can be used to emphasize a black and white picture for example.
Once you are satisfied with the brightness and the contrast in your picture, save it, and enjoy the memories.
