It is the best way to make your pictures more spectacular. The exposure tool has an effect on the highlights than on the shadows. It means that the bright tones are affected more than the dark tones.
Apply filters: Experiment with your built-in photo filters. You can give your image a different color effect, like Vivid or Dramatic. Try classic black and white looks like Silverstone or Mono.
