I'll ask you the same question as above, "Do you believe anyone is confused by a slider called exposure (or, at least, anyone who is not being willful)?"

If you asked people what the exposure slider does, what do you think they'd say?

What I say is that it makes the picture lighter. Some other sliders make the picture lighter too, only different. I push them all around until I like the way the picture looks.

And, to be sure, for most people, "exposure" or "brightness" -- who cares?  A rose by any other name, eh?

However, if it's all the same, then, why not use the proper term to describe what something does?
