Watch this video to learn how to fix challenging exposure issues

Fixing images that are underexposed (too dark) or overexposed (too light) can be a real challenge. In this video, we will be looking at two different images with two different exposure issues. One will be processed on a Mac with Luminar, fixing exposure on the image that is overall too dark. The other image will be processed on a PC with Luminar, with a challenge of correcting subjects that are shot into the sun so that they are too dark against a lighter sky.

You will learn how to use Luminar's RAW Develop filter to:

  • Use White Balance settings
  • Adjust Temperature and Tint sliders to manually adjust color temperature
  • Utilize the Eyedropper tool for color control
  • Try other options other then the Exposure slider to adjust exposure
  • Show how to use Clipping warnings
  • Selectivity lighten colors in an image
  • Add a filter effect to specific areas with the Masking Brush
