As you work with an image, it's very easy to get carried away.…With so many effects and choices, you might go a bit too far.…Let's take a look at one photo here and perhaps, I started enhancing that image,…I straighten it a bit, but went too far.…I decided to crop manually, pulling that in, not too bad there …and then we went over to Effects and I made the image antique with a really strong filter, …and then blurred the image, and added a vignette, and boosted the color …and added contrast, and continued to play because apparently, I was really bored.…
Now it is possible to go too far, and that's why you have …the Revert to Original button which will take you all the way back to the beginning.…So, to fix this image in this case, I would bring in the Definition, …I'd lift the Shadows a bit and recover the Highlights …and round that out with some Saturation and Contrast.…The before and the after.…We could definitely see the dog as well as some of the shades of brown …in his coat and I really like how that's working.…
