Fade the shadows of an image

The Fade adjustment lets you lighten or fade just the very darkest areas of an image without affecting the midtones or highlights. This gives the shadows (and the entire image) a washed-out, faded look.


Fade the shadows of an image

  1. Do one of the following:

    • Choose Format > Color Adjustments > Fade (from the Format menu at the top of your screen).
    • In the Tools sidebar, click and turn on Fade or add it from the Customize menu at the bottom of the Color Adjustments pane.
  2. Drag the Intensity slider to control the strength of the Invert adjustment. Hold down the Option ⌥ key before dragging if you’d like to extend the range of the Fade slider beyond 100%. You can also enter a percentage value from –200% to 200%.

Show Original: Click the Show Original button or press Control ⌃ + M on your keyboard to see what the image looks like without any color adjustments.

To reset all Color Adjustments, click Reset at the bottom of the Color Adjustments pane.
