Re: PLEASE HELP. overexposed photo

Hi Lauren,

I assume that you are the girl in front of the rail. Unfortunately you can not adjust what is not there. Your face is blown out to the point, that their just isn't any information left. I can darken it somewhat, but where it is completely white, the only way to fix it would be to paint it back in, or cut a face in from another photo.

Re: PLEASE HELP. overexposed photo

Dave is right. Your face is really blown out... I recolorized, but it has a flat look, but I did a very quick job.

Lauren, There is enough information that I can adjust your friend, but your face just doesn't have enough to work with. If you have another photo of your self I can see if I can fit it in.

Keep in mind, that this site is about learning, not about getting free work. I am happy to help you learn to make adjustments for yourself, and even try and show you how, but you should be participating in that process.

Re: PLEASE HELP. overexposed photo

Would you consider a black and white photo?

Re: PLEASE HELP. overexposed photo

Here is one using one of the additional photos that you posted. I hope that you like it.

It could still use some colors and levels adjustments in the other areas, I did just your face for now.
