I’m an Aperture novice…can someone pls explain if/how you can change the exposure in certain areas of a photo?  In other words, some of the photo is correct exposure, and other area is overexposed due to reflection of sunlight.  Many thx.

Hi,

For local adjustment, you need to use the brushes. You can either use the ones that are directly available as brushes (Type of Pen icon) or for any of the adjustment box, you can (through the wheel option on the right) duplicate it, and apply the new one only on a specific area (option to brush an adjustment available in the wheel options).

Hope it helps,
J.

Hi,

using a brushed in (or away) “Curves” adjustment is a very powerful way to do that.

Am I missing something?  I never saw a brush next to the Exposure brick to adjust exposure selectively.  Just look and don’t see one.   Where exactly is it, Joe?  It’s not under the wheel either.

Hi Silvia,

Have a look on this article from Joseph: HERE.

It show with print screen how you can get brushes for any brick.

Regards,

J.

Thanks, Joe.  I’ve been using brushes with all the other bricks and more or less fixed exposure on a specific spot with the Curves brick.  There is no brush anywhere I can see for the Exposure brick, which is what I understood Chapman was asking about.
