About histograms

A histogram is a graph that illustrates how light is distributed in your photo. If the histogram has a high peak on the left, the photo is underexposed and will appear dark. A peak on the right of the graph means that the photo is overexposed and will appear washed out. The height of the peaks is related to color information. The more of a particular color, the taller the peak.
