Quick Tips - Dave Newman

Here's a super quick Adobe Photoshop adjustment for bringing an underexposed image into "healthy" range with just a click or two. The beauty of this quick method is the fact that it brings your underexposed image into a healthy lighter version of that image,

 without too great a loss of the range. Open your sick, underexposed, image file in Photoshop. Next, duplicate the background (do this in Layers tool panel) then, in this same Layers panel, go to the NORMAL drop-down menu and click on SCREEN, and POW! Wow, this is so cool, I can't believe it! If it seems to over compensate, go to levels and readjust the image. The beauty of this quick method is the fact that it brings your underexposed image into a healthy, lighter version of that image, with some optimum Photoshop magic, better than manually tweaking with levels or curves.
