Selective Adjustments

Most photographs need selective adjustments to parts of the photograph that are excessively dark or light making it difficult to view though photograph in the intended way. Examples of this would be a face that's a little dark or a colorless sky.

1 Select the Magic Wand from the tool palette

2 Click on desired area to edit. To expand the area, hold down the Shift key and continue to click in other areas. The area to be edited appears inside of a moving dotted line border.

3 Open Levels, Curves or Hue/Saturation and adjust the selected area.

The Magic Wand has isolated the selected area. The rest of the image will not be altered in any way by the selected edit.
