Go from this-to-this with only ONE PHOTO. It’s quick and it’s easy to do. Ah, yes...overexposed windows. This seems to be one of the most common problems you see in many listing photos. Images where the room exposure looks good, but the windows are overexposed. Or, you can see what’s outside just...

If you take your own photos, you’ve no doubt had it happen. The photo looked great in the viewfinder, or on the LCD. But when you downloaded it, it had that yellow or orange cast to it.
