There is a complete set of online editing tools included in the Flickr platform. So even if your picture isn't perfect when it's uploaded, you still have a chance to fine tune it with a number of different effects and adjustments. In this video, I demonstrate how to use brightness and contrast. Afterward, you can either save over the original image, or put the corrected version alongside it.
- [Voiceover] While looking at this shot,…I'm thinking, well, maybe I want to…brighten it up a bit, add a little contrast.…So let's take a look at Enhance Brightness…and Contrast in this movie.…We'll go over here to our editing icon and click on it…and choose Edit right there, and let's start…with Enhance and see what it does.…We'll click on that.…We have some options here, we have high-def,…we have illuminate, not quite sure…why that's called illuminate (laughs)…Let's go back to high-def.…
And then we have color fix.…Color fix did a pretty good job there with that.…And we're gonna cancel, we're not gonna do any…of these right now, I just wanted you to see them.…And let's go to Brightness, and we have a little slider…here, we can brighten things up a bit.…That's fine, but I think then we should increase…the contrast also, so go ahead and Apply right there.…Now that we have applied a tool,…I want to point out these arrows right here,…this one and this one, we can go back to how it was before,…and we can return to our correction.…
