KODAK DIGITAL SHO Professional Plug-In Highlight and Shadow Controls
It is best to run any color correction like Kodak’s KODAK DIGITAL ROC or KODAK DIGITAL ROC Professional before running Kodak's KODAK DIGITAL SHO Professional. It is also very important not to make any brightness or contrast changes until after you run KODAK DIGITAL SHO Professional.
Next determine how much detail you want to bring out of the shadows. Moving the Shadows slider to the right continues to brighten the shadows. Underexposed areas (shadows) are noisier (grainer) than properly exposed areas. As you bring details out of the shadows you may see more noise. With the default settings the noise is generally not too objectionable. If the noise becomes too severe use a noise removal program like KODAK DIGITAL GEM Professional.
You will see more detail in the highlights by moving the Highlights slider to the right.
Bringing the details out of the shadows causes them to be brighter and more color saturated. If the color is too bright you can use the Color Saturation slider to reduce the amount of the increased color. Reducing the Color Saturation slider reduces proportionally the amount of color that was added. In other words, areas that are not affected by the plug-in will not change color saturation, areas that are changed slightly will be slightly changed and areas that are significantly changed will be significantly changed by the slider.
