I’ve seen several people post Shards of Dalaya screenshots that are quite dark. This is because of the way the SoD client works: It uses hardware gamma correction offered by the graphics card to get to the right brightness. This means that when taking screenshots, you get an uncorrected image that is often too dark.
You can quickly correct this in free tools such as The Gimp. Simply choose Color -> Levels and set the gamma level to something between 1.2 and 1.4, depending on taste and screenshot in question. Ta-daa!
Here’s what the levels dialog looks like:
There we go. And here’s an example result. It’s a very, very dark scene to begin with, but at least we see something now.
