I'm playing in Photoshop with some pictures that I just took. I'm pretty comfortable manipulating histograms with the levels tool, but I couldn't figure out how to fix this one (I was experimenting with spot metering in the photo). So I finally just edited my first photo using http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/photoshop-curves.htm"! W00t! What do you think? Improvement or no? I can't tell now. My judgement gets warped after messing with a picture for too long. Does anyone else play with curves? I read a little about it when learning levels, but I don't remember how it works. I'm mostly experimenting for fun now. (I'm making a slideshow for a friend. I'm so excited!! ) Edit: Hm, side-by-side comparison is better, methinks. Original: Edit: Okay, I did a couple more and think I'm starting to get the hang of it. Curves is awesome.
