These sliders affect the exposure and the contrast that can help you to bring back detail in highlights and shadows and to set a bright white and a dark black point in the image. Before we get started with these sliders, I want to make sure that your sliders look just like mine. If you're not using the exercise files and you happen to be using an older photo, one that may have been corrected in an earlier version of Lightroom, then you won't see the same sliders in your tone section of the Basic panel that I have here.

If that's the case, you should also see a warning square down here with an exclamation mark on it. You can get your sliders to look just like mine by holding down the Option key on the Mac or the Alt key on the PC and clicking on that warning icon. Now you'll be able to follow along...
