    How to adjust brightness with a smart object

    BarbaraBabbitt

      I opened a few dng files in Photoshop from Lightroom, then used HDR Efex Pro 2 to merge them into an HDR image. When I was done with HDR Efex Pro 2, I saved it as a smart object so I could modify the HDR Efex Pro 2 settings at a later time. I'd like to add a Brightness / Contrast adjustment layer, but that option, along with several others on the Adjustment Layers menu, is grayed out. I've dug around in the documentation, the forums, and various website, but haven't been able to figure out whether it's possible to adjust brightness on this image, or if there's a way around the limitation.

       

      I'm new to smart objects, and competent but by no means expert with Photoshop. If anyone can explain this to me I would be very grateful.
