Using Filters

Although this may seem to be the first filter to use to correct for improper exposure in
an image, Brightness boosts or lowers everything in an image at once. This means that
raising the brightness in an image raises brightness everywhere, including in the shadows.
Consequently, a brightened image can look washed out.

However, this filter is useful for modifying the edges and effects of shapes, masks, particle
systems, and generators.

A better filter for exposure correction is the Gamma filter. For more information, see
