If i understand correctly, exposure is the measure of lightness in a picture. In my phone, there are no settings by which I can set it manually (it does it automatically), I use to put my hand on camera and then remove it suddenly and take a shot to get higher exposure when needed. For low exposure I use to face camera towards a lights source then suddenly back to the point and take a shot.

This is an ugly way to do it, is there any software or technique which can do that??

Why don't you try other camera apps? There are tons of them in Play store. – roxan May 9 '12 at 4:17
I have tried many and the exposure settings don't change anything – LifeH2O May 12 '12 at 11:58
Then I think you should edit your question to reflect the fact that the exposure settings in most of the camera app doesn't work the intended way. – roxan May 13 '12 at 4:27
@roxan I read somewhere that my phone and many other does not support manual exposure settings, I was wondering if some app can still do that – LifeH2O May 13 '12 at 14:16

If you can't adjust the exposure even with third-party camera apps, the only solution would seem to be adjusting it in post-processing. For example Photoshop Express can do this right on the phone. Or you can use your favorite image editor after you move the photos to your PC.

Try downloading Pudding Camera.

There is a little wheel on the left side you can turn to change exposure.
