Have you ever come across an image that is very dark? Perhaps your flash wasn’t working or it wasn’t very bright. There are plenty of reasons why an image might be too dark, but there isn’t anything you should panic about because there are plenty of Photo Editing programs out there that can assist you in this matter to make it better. One program that is absolutely free and will do everything an expensive program will do is Google Picasa. You can download it just about anywhere on the net and is very easy to use. First off, once you have the program downloaded, you have to open it up. Once it has loaded up, move onto the next step.
You will be welcomed by all of your images that you have saved in your database. Browse through the ones you want to edit and brighten up. We are only going to be editing one image, not more than one, so please follow these directions precisely. Once you have found the image you want to edit, double click it and move onto the next step.
A new window will pop up after a few moments. This is known as the “Basic Fixes’ window and it is much known in this program. Move over to the left of the window, which is right next to your image and move the “Fill Light” slider over to the right as far as you want it. The more over to the right you move it, the brighter your image will be. You can always undo what you have done to an image, so there are no worries what so ever. Enjoy!
