Using the Histogram

Note: This is a premium feature available to paid Mylio subscribers. Learn more about the benefits of upgrading your Mylio account here.

Mylio produces photo histograms. A histogram is a representative graph of pixel distribution within an image that helps you adjust exposure and color balance to help you edit your picture.

You can access your histogram under the ‘Edit’ panel when you have selected an image. The Mylio histogram displays the distribution of red, blue, green pixels. The histogram will also show you luminance. All of these features can be toggled according to what part of the photo you would like to edit.

  1. Select an image and choose ‘edit’ mode.
  2. Open the Histogram panel by clicking on the grey triangle to the right of the word “Historgram,”
  3. Click on the histogram itself. A panel will appear that shows RGB, Red, Green, Blue and Luminance.
  4. Once this panel is open, you can select which mode you would like to edit in. The histogram defaults to RGB.
  5. As you adjust the sliding scales below the histogram (Exposure, Contrast, Highlights, Shadows, Whites, Blacks, Clarity) you will notice that your histogram begins to change.

It is important to remember that there is no way to create perfection within a histogram. As with any editing, you edit to your preferences.
