Help! I’ve applied the preset but photo is too dark/light or too cool/warm?
While my presets will work on the majority of photos, sometimes if you’re trying to edit an incredible “cool” photo (say one you took at the ski slopes) or a warm photo (think sunset vibes) then your photo might need a quick and easy adjustment. To fix it I suggest using either the Exposure tool or Colour.
How to fix an image that’s too dark or bright.
Go to the ‘Light‘ tab and play with the exposure bar and use the tool to make your image brighter or darker.
How to fix an image that’s too warm or cool
Go to the ‘Colour‘ tab and use the ‘Temp‘ bar to make your image cooler or warmer (blue = cooler, yellow = warmer). You can also use the ‘Tint‘ setting to further current the colour tone of your image. Think of it like makeup – to fix a red blemish you use a green concealer to neutralize the red discoloration – the same goes for editing your image!.
