Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Quick overall tonal adjustments, part of Photoshop Elements 10: Quick Fixes.
When we talk about Tonality in a photo, we're really talking about the …differences between light areas and dark areas. …All of the effects of light in the photo, both bright highlights and deep, dark shadows. …And generally speaking, we actually like relatively high contrast in an image. …We like the bright areas to appear nice and bright, and we like the shadow areas …to appear nice and dark, and overall the image has to have what appears to be a …good tonal value, good brightness. That can be a little bit tricky, but …fortunately we can also automatically apply these adjustments and that can be …done through Auto Levels. On the Enhance menu, you'll find an Auto …Levels command. And what this command will do is adjust …the value for the blacks and the whites in the image, the darkest areas and the …brightest areas, in order to achieve a wider tonal range within the image.…
Auto Levels will also adjust the middle tone values. …These are all of the brightness levels found in between black and white. …
