Add More Light to a Photograph in PhotoShop

February 12, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

To bring more light into your photograph, create a new layer.

Set the Blend Mode to "Color Dodge" and set the opacity to about 15%. (Color Dodge creates more realistic results).

With the brush tool set to a soft brush, hold the Alt/Option key to pick up colors from the area that you want to brighten. Keep brushing in some light and pick up new colors if the background changes.
