Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Fine-tuning with the Tone Curve, part of Lightroom 5: 2 Optimizing Your Photos.
…In the basic section of the right panel in…the develop module for Lightroom you'll find some tonal…adjustments that allow you to exercise a reasonably good…degree of control for adjustments for tonality in your images.…In fact, in most cases these are the only adjustments I need in order to…get the overall brightness and contrast in a photo to the exact levels that I'd like.…In some cases though, you may want to utilize the tone curve in…order to exercise a little more control over the tonality in your photos.…
The differences tend to be a little bit subtle,…but in some cases those differences can be important.…You can see that with the basic tone curve, we are able…to work on various regions of the photo based on tonal value.…We can adjust the highlights, the lights, the darks, and the shadows.…The highlights are the brightest areas of the photo and the…lights you can think of as being essentially the mid-tones and brighter.…Darks are mid-tones and darker and shadows are the darkest areas of the photo.…
