    Mall Rats

    So, uh.. yeah. This is a picture I took about five or six years ago with a film SLR in photography class. Sorry if this doesn't work properly - this is my first post on conceptart.org. The picture itself is super whited out, too, because my scanner is terrible. Sorry for the poor quality.

    The white really doesn't help it. Maybe you could fix that.

    I'm the guy that does his job! You must be the other guy!

    I'm not sure how. It's a print. I developed the film and enlarged the print myself - this picture is a scan of the glossy print that I have of it IRL. I currently don't have a scanner, so I can't re-scan it, and all I have access to is MS Paint and a standard picture program (Microsoft Office Picture Manager). Although I guess I could try using Photobucket or something like that.. I was thinking about darkening it/removing contrast or something like that, but wouldn't that just make it look murky and dark? I don't know, I'm a total technophobe.

    There are free programs you can download like gimp. Paint.net and maybe Artrage could help.

    If you are using Photoshop, an easy way to fix that photo is to choose "Shadow/Highlight" which will display a panel with slider to adjust the exposure.
