"If a photo has problems with exposure, the Color | Auto-correction menu item should be your first stop. The Auto correction feature offers several presets that can instantly improve the default exposure. The Auto Exposure preset usually provides the best result, but there is no reason why you shouldn't experiment with other available options, such as Auto Levels, Normalize, Equalize, and Stretch Contrast.

"As any photo editor worth its salt, digiKam offers level adjustment (Color | Levels Adjust) and curve adjustment (Color | Curves Adjust) tools which you can use to adjust exposure. Using both tools is not particularly difficult. With the level adjustment tool, you can tweak the exposure settings using the slides under the histogram, while the curve adjustment tool lets you adjust exposure by dragging the curve on the histogram."
