Shadow/Highlight Tool

This wonderful tool can make incredible changes to a photo in a few seconds. I love it for bringing up shadow detail and highlights. Digital cameras are all a bit limited in the dynamic range they can capture so this tool will come in handy in most images. Check out the difference in the images below. Simply move some sliders until you get the image you like best!
