Just as you have dark photos, you will also have images that are too bright. Fortunately these are easy to fix as well. Let's go in here to a photo and we will edit it a bit. This is one of those instances where it's just a tad bright. I could recover some of the highlights there and you see that the Histogram moves the details over. Look how those clouds start to come back. I will pull the overall Exposure down here a bit, and that is looking better. Pulling the White slider in starts to clip things, but pulling the Black slider in adds some of the detail back, and let's balance out the middle of that image there. I will round that out with some Saturation.
In this case, there are no skin tones, so I will leave that box unchecked and a bit of Definition really brings out the details on the clouds. Before. After. Using the Shift key, lets me toggle between the two states and makes it really easy to see how my fix is coming along. This brick wall, just a little bright, I will go ahead and pull down the levels here, moving it to the right to get more in the mid-tones, bring up the definition to really bring out the details in the rock, and a little more saturation.
Looks great, and those images have been updated.
