Default Adjusting Levels, Part 2

To familiarize yourself with the function of each arrow, make an extreme adjustment, just to see what happens. You'll quickly see what "too much" looks like and can back down from there.

The first photo shows what too much looks like. The white background is washed out, and some of the lighter colors (such as parts of the grass) have almost disappeared. The second is just right.
