PhotoDemon provides a dedicated Shadow and Highlight recovery tool. Unlike other photo editors, it sets the highlight and shadow threshold dynamically depending on the image, allowing for greater recovery control regardless of an image’s lighting.
A new midtone target can also be specified by clicking the desired location on the image, or by selecting a specific color.
Like all PhotoDemon tools, it also provides a command bar that allows you to save and load custom presets, randomize its parameters, and reset to default values. Last-used settings are automatically saved and restored, and all changes provide a real-time preview (no click or mouse button release required).
