Rescuing Photos with Poor Exposure

There are several tools for adjustusting exposure
One of the common problems people have with photos is exposure. I've done this myself: I have the camera set for indoor photos and then forget to change the setting to take some photos outside in bright light, or I take an outdoor shot without using fill flash and the faces of my subjects are shadowed.

What if you have a one-of-a-kind shot of a family gathering or of your children at the beach, but it is badly exposed? Before you press that delete button, consider how you can rescue the shot. The"auto exposure" tool usually does it for minor corrections, but if you have a really tough photo you need to go a step further.

Most good photo editing programs (like ACDSee and Photoshop Elements) offer the ability to make manual adjustments to the exposure "curves" tool.
