CyberNotes: Using Basic Paint.NET Features has a link to CyberNotes: Using Basic Paint.NET Features.

Paint.NET is my choice for serious photo editing (anything other than cropping). CyberNotes details shortcuts to features like Red Eye Removal, Auto-Levels, Curves and other effects.

See the original article for examples. Auto-Levels may be one of the most under-used features. I took the sample photo into Paint.NET and compared what Auto-Levels did with manually adjusting the Levels my self and the results very similar.

If you are not familiar with Levels, take a look at this article on Julie shows how she fixes bad lighting with levels in Photoshop. The same applies to Paint.NET. I can’t link directly to the article, only her diary, so go read it while it’s at the top…
