I had the power on my flash set too low and I have a bunch of these low contrast pictures.



How can I fix this?

Thanks.

Bill I gave this some adjustments in Levels and adjusted the contrast.
not sure if this is what you're going for.

I was thinking along the lines of keeping the background more or less the same, but your overall adjustments do look good.

That's what I get for thinking rather than tinkering.

Okay do keep that background the same...you going to need to make a copy layer make the adjustments on the layer...then add a layer mask...and mask the background...it can be done...but takes some time!

I would try this...dulicate the layer, and set the mode of the top one to SCREEN...then you can use a layer mast or delete the background parts so that just the model is effected.

If you bump up the contrast with levels, you will probably have to bring down the saturation a bit to compensate. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I played a little, but did lighten the BG a bit.

I'm beginning to think a lighter background is better anyway.

Thanks Don. I had some time to create a few masks to adjust things seperately.
