lightness help needed !!
I have a simple, maybe to some of you experts even a silly question, but PLEASE advise anyway...
I am trying to lighten a picture, a sample below.... When I use the lightness slider the result comes out so "grainy" and such a loss of detail and some colored speckles. Look at the AFTER in the dialog box.... I was using FastStone for this one, but i have the same result using any lightness slider. What is it, is it Noice or what ? And how would I go about avoiding it and still making a lightness adjustment?
Grazie,Thank you, Sal .. -
