How to change the brightness of part of a photo?

Recommended Posts


I have an image and I would like to soften the brightness ONLY from the top of it. How can I do this? I tried to do this using layers, but a color difference between the top and bottom is appearing.

Is there a way or plugin that I can do this so that the differences are smooth?

Hello Clamarc - welcome aboard the paint.net forum :)


Trick here is to use the selection tools to define a selection containing the problem area. When a selection is active, plugins, effects and adjustments are limited to the contents of the selection.
