    Raw Processing Tips: 03 Whites and Blacks

    The Whites and Blacks sliders control the extremes of the tonal range.

    Drag the Blacks slider left to darken the darkest tones and right to lighten them.

    Hold Alt while you drag for a view of clipped pixels. A few clipped black pixels are acceptable.

    When setting the white point, it’s best to prevent clipped whites by Alt-dragging the slider to a point just before the whites become clipped.
