These days, it's very easy to get a dark photo.…Perhaps the auto sensors in your camera misfired, or there is mixed lighting …that threw things off or maybe you just had the wrong setting selected.…That's okay, iPhoto is very forgiving and can help you do quite a bit …of repairs as you work.…In this case, let's take a look at this first photo here.…I'll edit the photo and I want to work with it.…Now under Effects, I can of course take advantage of Lighten or Darken, …but generally speaking, I want to jump over to the Adjust Tab.…
Now, this particular photo is RAW and that's good.…That means that it has the most information to work with from the digital camera.…I could take the Level Slider here and pull it in.…Pulling it until it reaches the first bump in the Histogram there and you'll see…that the whites are going to get brighter and then I could move this Middle slider …to balance out the exposure of the image.…Now, that's looking out pretty good.…Holding down the Shift Key will show me the before and the after.…
