    What is the difference between exposure & brightness adjustments in Premiere Elements 12+?

    Paul_B_GB Level 1

      I have a clip that's too dim for most of the time, with a little bright bit towards the end. I want to brighten it but i'm unsure whether to use the brightness or exposure adjustment (or even whites).

       

      So there's an 'adjust' section called 'lighting'. Then there's tabs for brightness, contrast, exposure, whites, and blacks (see image below).

       

      Can somebody please tell me what the difference is between them all (including whites, and blacks), and when they should or should not be used? I've searched the help file and the web and just can't find any information on the differences.

      Many thanks.
