Where did the light details go?

Hello!!

I have been away for a while a feel like a brand new member.

I was taking back tools to get ready and to refresh my PS skills.

As a first practice I wanted to find all the tutorials to fix undexposed images. I have asked around, look around and I can't gathered the last tutorials I saw.

Do the tutorials get removed after certain time? I have looked and looked and spend so much time looking but no luck. Retouchpro is getting BIGGER AND BIGGER every year. Incredible!!

Could anyone tell me where I or how to find all the tutorials related to this matter? If anyone knows any or anything close to it please post it
I will appreciate it a lot.

I have images with the subject very light and the background veeeeeery dark. I know that with the good help of CS this is a lot easier but not as detail and real.

Thank you so much ahead of time. I remember the last time I checked there was a good tutorial to bring the details of dark images but I forgot who wrote it. Man! it is hard to find a golden-coin in this inmense treasure of information that is these forums.

Take care and good fortune!

Shadow / Highlight

Correcting underexposed images can be greatly facilitated with the use of the Shadow / Highlight adjustment in PS CS or CS2. Following is a free video tutorial and one of many articles out there.

thank you for replying

Thank you very much for the info. I had checked the tutorials but I never found what I was looking for.

What was the technique used before the Shadow/highlights? in PS7 or before to solve this problem?
I will appreciate if someone could give me a hint. No problem if you can't.



I still have PS7. I remember seeing tutorials on this underexposed images with a lot of shadows.

Again, thank you very much..

Prior to CS, the methods used were Curves, which many users found intimidating, layer blending and masking, and levels. Shadow / Highlight tool is a huge time saver and simplifier..
