Adjusting Brightness/Contrast in Photoshop Elements 12: Overview
The Brightness/Contrast command is widely used by people new to Elements. Unfortunately, it has some real limitations. When you adjust your image using this command, it applies the changes to the entire image equally – including midtones and shadows that may or may not need fixing. If your image requires subtle adjustments and you want to use this command, select “Enhance| Adjust Lighting| Brightness/Contrast…” from the Menu Bar. Use the sliders to make your adjustments and click “OK.”
