Fill and Recovery Sliders in Camera Raw

Chances are you've noticed that when you attempt to increase the exposure in an image that is underexposed, you are going to clip your highlightsâ”take areas of light color information and make them completely white. Before Camera Raw 4.1, the only way for you to compensate for this would be to dial back the exposure. Now, with the Recovery slider you can bring back some of the detail that was lost in the highlights without affecting the entire image.

    You’re right, Corey, the Recovery slider has been a great addition. But you mention the Fill slider (I assume you mean Fill Light slider) in the title, but don’t say anything about it in your post. What does that thing do anyway?
