    Is there a way to recover the highlights in one part of the photo only? I have an outdoor photo of a 1 year old where part of the background is completely blown and I have taken the highlights slider all the way to the lowest. Will that be the best I can do or are there any other options?

      Hello Rachael,

      You can! AfterShot’s Layer Editing function lets you adjust a specific portion of an image. To do this, open the Layers panel in the top toolbar (left of the magnifying glass). Next, press +Adjust to add a new adjustment layer. Then use the Brush tool in the Layers panel to brush over the region of the image you want to edit. You can now apply edits that will only affect the highlighted region.

      Hope this helps,
      Discovery Center Team
