In above dialog, input levels is the main tool for adjusting the photographs.... The black arrow on the left represents shadows... the grey one represents midtones and the white arrow represents highlights in the photograph... The curve basically shows us the density of the data in various ranges... These mountains and valleys show the ranges of a photograph in terms of brightness... A good rule of thumb is to bring the black and white sliders towards the middle so that they are just underneath the edge of the "mountain" nearest to them. The midrange grey arrow can then be adjusted for fine-tuning the image....

Output levels allow us to change the photograph's tonal range... Instead of pure black to pure white we can adjust the maximum whiteness or maximum blackness to a shade of grey if desired...

The eyedroppers are quick step to editing levels.... Click the black eyedropper and then click on the part of your pic that should be black to have the program adjust levels and color hue accordingly... Follow the same process for the grey and white eyedroppers if needed.

As long as the preview button is checked you will be able to see the results of your changes in real time. Once your image looks like you want it to just click the OK button and you are finished adjusting levels...

Now lets play with these and see how the photograph changes...
