Why is it not possible to darken highlights or unclip them. but you CAN brighten shadows easily in photos and reveal hidden details (Maybe noisy. but shadows dont get clipped hard like highlights do in photos)
Why is that?
why can you take a raw photo and brighten up the shadows so dramatically. but if highlights are clipped. theres very little to nothing you can do at all.
Why is noise always in the dark parts of images more than the light?
Is there any kind of fancy of AI deep learning image mainipulation software that can even moderately recover clipped highlights?
Is there any way to make a camera sensor act in reverse so noise would be in the bright parts of the image instead of the dark shadows.. and just read the image in reverse so that its normal way but noise happens in highlights instead of shadows? or is that just not physically possible?
