I have tried to do this before and it did not turn out at all but after many tries I think I got something close.
I did have to change it with Shotwell but I'm happy
What was it that didn’t turn out at all, on previous attempts. Sharpness and details? Or exposure?
I use Linux OS so I have to find things that work for my system lolNow I know a new app for me, Shotwell!
What’s good about it?
Yes that is what I was referring to. Exposure. It is normal for a camera to overexpose a lighter subject on a dark background. The exposure meter is attempting to have the dark background show as 18% Neutral grey. So more light is allowed in to brighten the large dark area, and as a result that also lightens (overexposed) your small brighter subject. The same thing happens when shooting pics or video at a nighttime concert.I'm still new to the digital camera world and when I tried before all I got was a ball of bright light in the middle of a dark pictue.
