  3. sS Before SHADOW/HIGHLIGHT After Shadow/Highlight Menu: Image > Adjustments > Shadow/Highlight Shortcut: – See also: Curves, Levels command, Version: CS, CS2, CS3 Brightness/Contrast A clever new feature first introduced in Photoshop CS that allows you to adjust the shadow and highlight areas of an image by correcting each pixel based on the luminance values of neighboring areas. Image contrast can be increased in the shadows or highlights or both without significantly sacrificing contrast in other regions. As with many Photoshop adjustments you have several sliders to fine-tune your corrections. The Shadows and Highlights sections each have an Amount, Tonal Width and Radius slider. The Amount slider controls the steepness of a brightening or darkening curve. Larger values lighten shadows and darken highlights. A value of zero for both Shadows and Highlights produces a straight line and no modification of the pixel, while a value of 100 produces a very steep curve with The default is set to 50%. If you are trying As you adjust the slider you can obtain a maximum modification.
