Hi Ladies!

4 posts in this topic

I have a picture of Mikey that is just too dark. I've used PSE2 to clean up and all that. I can't get the blue of his uniform right ... it's still coming out too dark. If I change some of the settings, it turns out faded.

Any help would be great ...

This is a new tip that I read in a magazine and have had alot of luck with it. I also have PSE2

Open Picture>choose layer, duplicate layer and click ok
Choose window>layers, there you'll see 2 layers background and background copy. Click background copy.
Locate the drop-down list just above this layer, which should say normal. If the picture is overexposed and very light choose choose Multiply. If the photo is underexposed or dark select Screen.
If the fix is too much, adjust the opacity a bit.

Hope that helps!
