Hi Rose,

Although I have Adobe Photo Shop, I often choose to use Sagelight Image Editor, as it has some slider options that are easy to use to give your image the pop you desire, whether it be modest or overboard.  Those sliders are:

1. Shadows - Increase or decrease light in the shadow areas,

2. Brightness - Increase or decrease overall brightness of the picture.

3. Highlights - Similar to exposure in PS raw conversion, increase or decrease.

4. Fill light - Increase only

5. Low tone contrast - Increase or decrease

Using a combination of these usually, but not always allows me to give my photos the look I desire.

Good luck,

Phil
