As we move further into the Tuning category of adjustments, you'll find tools for working on certain aspects of an image. The Highlight tool affects just the brightest portions of a photo. This approach is good for enhancing dull highlights without bringing up all of the other values in the image, as with an exposure change.

  1. Click the Highlight tool in the sidebar.
  2. Click an edit tile above the image to increase or decrease the highlights (Figure 4.35). In this case, I'm boosting the white waterfalls without washing out the surrounding rocks. You can also drag the slider below the tiles.

  3. Click the green Save button (the checkmark) to apply the setting.
