Photoshop for Beginners : Photoshop Tutorial: Brightness & Contrast

Uploaded by expertvillage on 13.09.2008

Now we're going to talk about how to adjust your brightness and contrast in your Photo
Shoppe program. If you look over here, you can see that I have my image layer right here
or my image drop down menu here. And if I come down here to adjustment, I'll come over
here to brightness and contrast. And it brings up this bar that has two sliders here. And
this first slider will adjust my brightness. And as you can see, I'll bring it up just
a little bit to bring this little girl out. And then I'll adjust the contrast a little
bit. Just a little bit down some to make it a little bit softer. As you well know, you
can just take this and you can just blow it all out of proportion depending what you want
to do with it. If you want to be a little bit more artistic with how your photo comes
out or if you're just doing some crazy design work. There you go. Hit okay. There it is
your brightness and contrast all in one easy button that you can use. And you can adjust
them however you want them. If your photo get all crazy dark, you can just do whatever
you need to do to bring them right back out. So play around with it, have fun and enjoy.
