 Improve lighting and color

Brighten a photo and make its colors pop using adjustment layers.

 Sharpen and save

Apply a sharpen filter to give your photo a finishing touch. Then save your edited file in PSD format to preserve your layers for future editing. To share your photo online or by email, save a copy as a JPEG.
