Why are imported pictures so dark?

Recommended Posts

I have recreated my old High School and am importing pictures of the graduating seniors to be pasted on the hallway walls.  The picture images are too dark for quality.  I have posted images in jpg, bmp, png, and tif.  They are all too dark.  Using Architect 2015, Win 7-64 bit, 16 gb ram, i5, 8 gb video card.  The images when viewing in Windows are teriffic.  Any help appreciated.

Adjust them in an image editing program before importation into Architectural.

Thanks David but I do clear them up in my Adobe Photoshop prior to adding them to my program.  If I "Import" the pics and try to paste them, they always end up on the floor.  I have been uploading them into my "user file" in the Library.  Is there a way to paste them on the walls?  I will attach the original pic below.

I'm not getting the same results as you.

Maybe you could try adding a light?

Problem solved.  I found the answer on this website.  It makes you run around the barn to get to the hen house but it works.  Import your picture as a material and then paste it on a frame as a mirror material.  Thanks for your help.  Jim
