Adobe Premiere Clip provides mobile video editors with the tools they need to create great-looking projects from their iPhone or Android device. Editors need ways to organize and trim clips, edit the look of these clips, add music and more. For a smartphone app, Adobe Premiere Clip has these features in spades.
So you have the clip organized and trimmed as you want them, but now you have to edit how they look. Well, the Adobe Premiere Clip you've covered, because you can adjust the exposure of your video projects. To edit exposure, you must have a project in the Premiere Clip's freeform editor, not the automatic editor.

If you are on an iPhone, select the video clip in your freeform project To adjust the levels, press the lens icon in the lower left corner. The lens icon looks like a circle with lines inside the spiral inward to another circle. This opens the video adjustment settings for the current scene.
If you are using an Android device, tap the clip you want to adjust in your free image project's main screen. Then tap the lens icon at the top left to activate the video adjustment settings for the current scene.
From here you can edit exposure, highlights and shadows.
The exposure slider will adjust the intensity of the overall light in the image. If you slide it too far to the right you will probably notice that the image is blown out or over-exposed. Similarly, too extreme to the left, and your image may be too dark.
Highlights are the brightest points in the image. Slide this to the left if the bright dots in the image seem too bright, or push it to the right if they appear a little dark. Just remember – the highlights will not control the brightness of the whole picture, just the brightest points.
Shadows are the darkest points in the picture. Just like editing highlights, where you slide, the shadow slider varies depending on how bright or dark the dots in the image are.
Adobe makes it easy to go up and go with video adjustments. While you can't edit exposure, highlights and shadows for your entire project at the same time, it would be a rare case if you decided to do it anyway. If you really wanted to do that, you can export your video project first and upload that video to a new freeform project and make adjustments at once because it will be a big clip.
