Fixing Dark and Underexposed Images – Tip of the Week

Posted in , ,

Tagged with , ,

Easily fix dark and underexposed images inside ON1 Photo RAW 2019. Using the Develop tab you can quickly pull out darker detail using the shadow and exposure sliders. Don’t forget to incorporate detail and contrast when you pull up on shadows because it will more often than not leave your image looking flat. To deal with noise and sharpening, head into the Effects tab and add a Noise Reduction and Sharpening filter.

    Have you tried starting with ‘Auto’ on this image? I’ve found ‘Auto’ gets me at least 50% of the way to what I want. Is the image available for download?

      I’m not a huge fan of using Auto because I like creating my looks from scratch usually but it is a great place to start inside Tone & Color especially if you don’t have a look in mind already. It is not, unfortunately but we will have more practice videos with practice files coming soon :)

    Enjoyed the video. I always love the subtle nuance that I learn even in Basic videos. Really good job. And I love the results that you got.

    Instead of painting out the noise by a brush to create a mask would a luminosity mask be a better perhaps quicker starting point to make a better mask?
