Exposure Editing - Punching up a Flat Photo

RAW photos can look dull, or flat straight out of the camera. A few simple post-processing adjustments can give them pop, which attracts viewers attention and generates excitement.

We put together this tutorial to guide you through how to give flat images more punch. We teach you how to add impact by increasing clarity, make tones pop with adjustments to contrast, and show you when to use vibrance to enhance colors. Also, we share tips for evaluating edits you make, such as analyzing clarity effects on skin tones to ensure they are well balanced for the shot.
