The Right Light

- Find the Relight Tool in your Tools Tab.
- The Relight Tool will automatically select and light your face.
- As you can see each feature allows you to adjust Brightness, Hue, & Smoothness.
The color of your light can make all the difference.
- When using Studio Pro 1 try playing with the Hue to find the shade of lighting that matches your image or to have some experimental fun.
- Then tap the Smoothness icon to see if you need that light to hit harsh or soft.
- Notice the difference in each adjustment. Some are subtle and other dramatic.
Once you’ve gotten to know the different capabilities start checking out the other features like Studio Pro 2 which casts a dramatic shadow or Studio Pro 3 which illuminated straight on.
Make sure to play with each adjustment to really get to know this Tool. The more you play the faster you’ll master finding your light!
