Step 4: Step 4 - Exposure
The "Exposure" tool enhances the light or darkness of a photo. If you slide the tool to the right, it lightens everything. If you slide the tool to the left, it does the opposite and darkens your photo.

Step 6: Step 6 - Fill Light
The "Fill LIght" tool 'fills in' the darkest parts of your photo with light, and brightens them to bring them out and show more detail in these shadow areas.
Step 7: Step 7 - Blacks
The "Blacks" tool enhances any black that is featured in your photo and lightens or darkens those parts.
