Many people shake with fear at the very mention of Curves. You don’t need to fear anymore, because this helpful video will take the pain out of it. Watch as I explain in plain English how to use curves and bend them to your advantage. (pun intended).
Use Adjustment Layers whenever possible, because they are non-destructive. (Can be changed later).
Click the little finger icon to drag and adjust directly on the screen.
(With the Curves Modal Dialog only Ctrl+M/Cmd+M – Non Adjustment layers)
Hold down the Ctrl/Cmd key and click on a portion of an image to add a targeted point to the curve.
Hold Down Ctrl+Shift/Cmd+Shift to add points to the color channels of a curve.
