The Shadows/Highlights adjustment is known from Adobe Photoshop. It can be stored in PSD files as a Smart filter. Now, you can also use it in Photopea.

This adjustment allows you to lighten the shadows, or to darken the highlights of an image. It is an advanced tool, which can not be achieved with Levels or Curves.
