Hey,

I took a bunch of digital photos inside a museum yesterday, which did not allow flash photography. A lot of the photos that I took are quite dark. The Photo Editing programs that I have on my computer is Magix Extreme and FastStone. How can I improve the quality without just lightening everything, which washes out the image?

I don't use those programs, but you'll need to adjust both the brightness and the contrast. You might also need to adjust the overall color if incandescent lights skewed the color balance to yellow.

You might also try Picasa. Its made by Google and is pretty versatile & easy to use
In the beginning there was the command line.

If Picasa does not do it I am sure you can bulk adjust them with Fast Stone
Just choose the files to be brightened, and set the brightness in advanced options/adjustments (check the little box) then choose convert.

Note: you can at the same time adjust the size to a manageable size (if desired).
plus a bunch of other changes
