Effect/Function: Contrast Function

Description:

One of the most important flows of digital domestic use cameras is that, when missing perfect light conditions, they give contrast errors. From the menu, the photographer might have to select manually the settings to adapt the shooting parameters to conditions; weather, speed of the moving subject, indoor or outdoor shooting with various light intensities, time of the day; all these conditions are the factors that contribute massively to essentially unsuccessful images.

Mechanical cameras were even worse, since they were always operated by hand, and the photographer had to learn a bunch of new things about film sensitivity, focal distance, exposure times and contre-jour etc., before being able to take an honorable picture.

How does an “unsuccessful image” look like with a digital camera? Well, it mainly is – when lacking contrast – a bit faded, a bit blurry, a bit lifeless, somehow disappointing, and you don’t want to feel like that with your photos, do you? Another example of an “unsuccessful image” is the “burnt” picture, i.e. when the exposure time was, because of software error, longer then it should have been with a certain light intensity.

“If there is a problem, there is at least one solution,” said a wise man. Your solution is to increase or to decrease color intensity. In doing so, when the frame is faded, you can “resuscitate” the picture. By the contrary, when the photo is burnt, you have to lower the amount of color, bringing the image back to an approximate normality.

Easy Photo Effects software has solved this problem for you: to fix any low contrast pictures you have you can simply press the contrast button. In the settings you can adjust the balance of the colors or just use a low setting and press the “Contrast” button a few times until you are satisfied.

Settings:

Change the contrast strength by moving the slider to the right, then press "Ok" and press the "Contrast" button to see the result. TIP: After the progress window is finished you can close it by pressing the "Ok" button or with the spacebar on your keyboard.
