Unfortunately not all point and shoot cameras meter the same way, I have three and have to adjust my technique with each. Generally though, I meter an image until the sky isn't blown out by pointing the camera mostly into the sky. Then I lock the exposure by pressing the shutter release half way. Then with the shutter release still at half, I reframe the image to what I want then push the shutter all way. I find that as long as I have some pixels everywhere in the image, I can adjust them in photoshop. Depending on the image I can adjust them in rbg colour space or lab colour.
