I look at them kind of like sandpaper for a woodworking project: The Contrast slider is the really coarse paper that you use to get in the ballpark of the final shape you want, the Levels sliders are like a medium grit that allows you to fine tune the shape and get closer to your goal, and then the Curves allow the finest control like a really fine grain ...


Yes, your assumption is correct. A levels control is basically the equivalent of a curves control that can only be adjusted at the end points and one point in the middle, while a contrast slider is (usually) the equivalent of moving both ends at the same time (although some may be more sophisticated). The curves tool gives the most flexibility, but also ...


This is really a basic "how do I do post processing" question, and it's beyond this group to do general tutorials of any length. I've linked to a couple of older questions with some links to some good resources and discussion on this topic. That said, the general answer to your question is that you don't need any specific button or slider in Photoshop or ...


I don't know of any "easy" way to fix an image like this. I don't know of any way that could be done purely in Lightroom either, although you could do some tweaking with the shadows and highlights sliders before bringing it into Photoshop for the full correction. It is possible to fix it, however, using a combination of dodge/burn for selective shadow and ...


It's easy.. Just go to your Export settings >File Settings >Format --> Original. Here: Your photo's original state will be exported.. Just choose "Original" and export all your photos ;)


One possible way to do this is: make virtual copy of images reset settings on this virtual copy export jpeg from virtual copy destroy it (if you will not need it anymore)


Hopefully you shot raw. Then you can come a long way with 3 mechanics: highlights down to bring out more detail in the sky vs snowy mountains shadows up, to make hte details in the gorge more visible for the human eye. if noisy in black part because visible, adjust black level down to remove that. clarity up. when people are in thw photo clarity over 15 ...


I wouldn't change the image at all. You could lift the shadows slightly with the shadows slider or even increase the exposure(which would require compensation of highlights to save the sky), but I don't think this image needs either. If you did lift the shadows it would all start to look pretty mute which to me is not desirable. You have more options if ...


Based on junkyardsparkle's pre-processing (I cropped the sample in order to fit 1:1 /when upscaled/ to page) I've tried to employ 10 various upscaling methods (including very exotic ones) to find out which one would cope with the weird Epson PhotoPC 600 pixel rendering best. The samples are upscaled to 200% as requested with no further post-processing. ...


You are asking more then one thing here. Why doesn't the Print module have an option to save as TIFF Why does the print module exist What advantages does TIFF have over JPEG Answers below: It is anybody's guess who isn't on the development team, but it has been requested as a feature to add in the future(here and here). Its main advantages are to ...


Content aware patch or healing tools should do the job. If you don't get good results, in the sky area, try using the brush, selecting some blue sky and painting over the hair first, then use the healing tools. This is especially true near the edges of the image. What specifically went wrong with your results?
