Hello Folks! Today we are going to continue our discussion of the Adjustment Panel. If you missed our intro to the Adjustment Panel, you can find it HERE. Today we are going to talk about the Brightness and Contrast. It’s the first icon listed and looks like this.

Brightness and Contrast is a simple, but powerful tool. Just click on the icon to add a brightness and contrast layer. You can easily edit the tones of a photo by simply sliding the sliders either way.

And that about does it for Brightness and contrast! Using the Legacy box will only increase/decrease each pixels value, using the legacy box isn’t recommended. Open up a picture and give it a try. You may be surprised by the effects you can create! NOTE: you can also get to the brightness and contrast by going to image->brightness and contrast.
