Re: How to darken a picture!

Hi Gerry,

I mostly lowered contrast as I darkened to preserve detail.

Re: How to darken a picture!

Use one of the other pictures to extract the tone with match color.
I run some colors adjustments using PictoColor plug in.
I have applied another plug in called Photolight & the usual a dodge & burn technique.

Re: How to darken a picture!

Have you tried using Shadow/Highlight to darken the image, it may get you somewhere close to what you want.
It will darken
It will colour correct (I see you have desaturated slightly)
And you can adjust midtones as you were asking.

It could be a start for you.???

Re: How to darken a picture!

having looked at the other image I'd say you should look into PWL and mess around with colour layers and opacity
