Dear Mr PhotoShop Know-It-All,

Sometimes when I take real estate pictures, the interior is okay, but the view outside is too bright. Can you fix this picture for me?

Dear T.M.,

Yes, I certainly can help you. Remember to shoot two pictures, one exposed for outside, and a second exposed for the interior. Be sure to use a tripod to keep the camera steady and at the same angle. Then, stack the two pictures in Photoshop using layers and the erase tool to blend them together. Unfortunately, the exterior color information is no longer present in the photo you sent me, so I had to improvise.

I hope this helps. Next?
