Join Mikkel Aaland for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Exposure slider, part of Getting Started with Adobe Camera Raw 5.
We're going to look at ways to manually map the tonal values of an image. …Having said that, I want to remind you that generally my first approach is to …try the Auto setting here and see how good a job Camera Raw has done with the …tone mapping with that setting. Then, if I'm not satisfied with auto …setting, I'll move my way through the other sliders and manually adjust the …exposure values. Let's start with the exposure slider in …this case and then in other videos, I'll go into more detail about the other sliders.…

There are certainly subjective and …objective considerations, so the exposure slider, here, positive values lighten up …the image. And I'm always really carefully watching …the histogram when I move this slider, almost more than watching the Preview …window because the histogram just gives me so much information about how those …tonal values are being redistributed when I move the slider.…
