Using Curves In PS

Thu Mar 01, 2007 10:31 am

Hi all,
I've been having some underexposure problems lately and was wondering how to use the curves function in PS to rectify this.Could somebody please provide some examples of how to do this?
Thanks a lot,Alex

This might also provide some useful information.

Whilst improving your PS skills is never a waste, it might be more a valuable exercise to determine why you are getting under exposures and overcome that.

It's easy mate... Don't use PS to fix dodgy shooting technique then you don't have to worry about it! Like Chris said, work out why you're underexposing and fix that instead!

As others have said, find out why your exposure before processing is not correct.
