Fix Dark Photos
When you take a photo that turns out too dark, you may
immediately assume it’s unsalvageable. Although no amount
of editing can make up for poor lighting, you can slightly
improve an image using these tricks. Simply open your dark
photo within Enlight and tap Image > Clarity in the menu bar.
Choose the Clarify option to immediately brighten your image.
Then, tap Tools along the bottom to adjust sharpness, saturation, etc. Once done, tap the checkmark. If a specific area
needs more attention (e.g., someone’s face) then select Image > Target > Position and select the area you would like to
correct. Then tap Tone and make the necessary adjustments.
Create Double Exposures
Double exposures have a way of making even the simplest

number two over photo number one. Tap Tools along the
bottom of the screen and then select Blending. There are a
few different blending options to choose from. Select one and
then slide your finger up or down on the image to adjust the
intensity. If you select Tools again, you can select Erase and
remove certain areas of the top image. Once you’re happy
with your image, tap the checkmark in the upper right corner
and then tap the Share icon.
