Fast Fix Gamma - How to Fix Bad Pictures:
When a picture is too dark or too light, using a photo program to edit brightness and contrast is not always the
best way. Using a Gamma Feature will usually provide better results.
Take note of the three photos below:
The first picture is the original image. Because of the bright snow in the background, the subject in the picture
was under-exposed and is too dark.
In the second picture shown, the image is corrected using the Fast Fix Gamma feature in PhotoELF.
A gamma correction allows the features to become more pronounced without a washing out effect.
The third picture shows the result when just contrast and brightness are used to fix the image. Note
how the image appears to be washed out.
Most of the time, using the Gamma Feature will fix your pictures. In worst case scenarios, a combination of Gamma, Contrast and
Brightness may be used.
The Gamma feature may be accessed in the main program (Edit Menu), in the Editor, and in the Print Window. Right click a photo
in the print window for a menu.
