"Even in very bad cases, the AKVIS Enhancer and AKVIS Noise Buster plug-ins can help you salvage underexposed pictures. In my collection, I have some seriously underexposed photos which, in the past, I tried to salvage with Adobe Photoshop. This was always a long and difficult work and I often needed to use several adjustment layers, or to go into another color mode, or both, without getting a satisfactory result each time. Now that I've discovered the AKVIS Enhancer and AKVIS Noise Buster plug-ins, I've decided to try my luck again with some of those bad pictures : I really was very impressed, because in a few minutes I often got better results than in hours of working with Photoshop alone.

So I decided to share my experience by writing a short tutorial for which I chose an underexposed picture taken last year by one of my grand daughters. She photographed her mother working at home with her laptop. Unfortunately, the flash didn't work and everybody thought the photo was good for the trash can."
