Christian Dillner Hagen Posted August 8, 2021 Share Posted August 8, 2021 (edited) Hi, I wonder how best to brighten up darker parts of a photo without effecting the rest of the photo? In Lightroom I use the gradient filter to select the area I want to brighten and increase the exposure of that part/area. It's not perfect either as it brightens all the parts from the selected area and below. I have tried to use the paintbrush and gratient filter in overlay on Paint.net and it kind of works but the result is very noisy on very dark parts. I have also tried to use the lasso selection to select the only part I want to increase brightness on but when the area is deselected there is har edge around the selection. How do I avoid the hard edge and get a more smooth transition? Is there a tools for changing exposure in Paint.net similar to what Photoshop and Lightroom has? Is there a better way than what I have tried above wich will give the best result with minimal noise?
