I have the idea of an exposure adjustment tool.

When you shoot wedding there are so different light conditions and the camera most of the time can't it. So you have to adjust every picture by hand. So my idea is a tool where you can click on the area which should be correct exposed.

Options for the tool

- size of the tool (brush)
- exposure correction from -2 to +2 apertures

Does anyone understand me ;-)

For many images shot in similar lighting conditions, you should be able to take advantage of the Match Total Exposure feature. You adjust 1 image manually (e.g., using Exposure slider) to the appropriate brightness level. Then you use the Match Total Exposure feature (using your adjusted image as the "primary" image) on the rest of the images in the set.
