The ABC of Photography – Burn tool

Burn tool

A tool that can be used to darken parts of an image selectively during digital image manipulation. The tool gets its name (and its hand-shaped icon) from ‘burning- in’, a traditional darkroom process in which parts of a print could be made darker by giving some areas of a print more exposure than others. Also, see the Dodge tool.
