How to fake an over/under exposure

I would like to know if I can fake an over/under exposure from a normal picture in Ps? and if so which is the best way to do it? Thanx in advance for your feedback.

Re: How to fake an over/under exposure

Have you tried adding an Exposure Adjustment Layer or opening the image in Camera RAW and using the Exposure slider or just using an old fashion curve?
Regards, Murray

Did some test using curves, but didn't think on using ACR or Exposure Adj. layer... I'll use these two methods for sure. Thanx again Murray

Works with levels as well...usually moving the midtones slider left/right...You can also simulate Under/over developed pictures by simply adding a white/black plain layer on top set to linear light and with a lower opacity (~30%)...Although can be done in many other ways...
