When using my rebel in the creative modes/w no flash
the exposure guage suggest good exposure (ie... centered on the scale)
based on shutter speed, aperature, and iso speed.
the problem is that every time i open the images
they are too dark and have to be lightened.
any experience with this??
It sounds like you have either bumped the FEC (Flash Exposure Compensation) control or the camera isn't metering the flash correctly. Try bumping up the FEC and seeing if that works. Also, check your metering (center-weighted, evaluative, etc.) to make sure that the camera is selecting the area of the photo that you want to be properly exposed.

Auto Focus does not determine exposure. Only sharpness. "Wrong" exposure could be due to the metering mode being set in Spot Metering. Set it back to Evaluative Metering which may improve the overall even exposure of your shots. Test your shots in full auto or P mode. M (Manual) mode will require you to check the exposure setting manually (you can see the indicator in the viewfinder when you half-press the trigger)
The openning flash button only works on non automatic shooting modes. On creative zone (automatic options with predefined options) the flash will rise automatically, based on the current exposure conditions. On "Flash Off" mode won't rise the flash ever. Let me know, please if it solve the problem
That is a custom function of the camera that can be change back to default with ease. While in one of the creative zones press the menu button and navigate to the 5th and final tab on the top right.
This is the Setup menu 2. In this menu, select “Custom Functions (C. Fn)” . This will open a submenu of numbered options. Select #04 and set it to 0: the default AF/AE lock on a half depress of the shutter.
That should get your camera back to the expected auto focus with the shutter button.
This could be many things. If indoors, use higher iso setting and/or use the flash. Make sure exposure compensation is set to 0, or raise it. Use one of the automatic programs and let camera pick shutter speed and aperture. In manual mode, pay attention to exposure value in viewfinder, and avoid using higher apertures unless outdoors in bright sun (f16, f22, etc) the higher this number the less light is allowed to camera.
