For example, compare the center girl's shoes in both larger images at the top of the page. Caution: The histogram shows the data of the image. Finishing with the Photoshop Auto Levels or PhotoDeluxe Instant Fix controls at completion is often good and dramatic.

BACK TO THE FUTURE : Irina Werning I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them.
