Levels vs Curves

05 December 2005

I thought I was all super-slick adjusting Levels on my images instead of using Brightness/Contrast, but now I'm experimenting with a new technique using Levels. I had the pleasure of watching a little Call for Help segment on G4 one Saturday morning, and Alex Lindsay explained the basics of Levels compared to Curves. I think I've managed to reproduce my old results and gone beyond to work even more precisely.

I have yet to see if it'll speed or slow my editing process. I don't think I can afford to get any slower -- I'll never get photos posted.

I'm currently in the process of rescuing pictures of the Bass Bin Halloween party from the dark depths of under-exposure. Raves always make good subjects for lots of correction.
