Join Taz Tally for an in-depth discussion in this video Achieving super accurate, target-based color corrections, part of Exploring Photoshop: Mastering Curves.
- For this project, we're going…to do a second target-based correction,…but it's going to be a more accurate one.…We're going to start with the final product…that we ended up with with the previous project…which was an eyedropper-based quick…and dirty version using the target.…We're going to keep that color correction curve…so we can compare and contrast…when we get done with this one.…So if you've just found and were attracted…by the more accurate version,…I really want to encourage you to go back…and preview or review the previous project…in which we used the eyedroppers.…
The reason is I set up the whole conceptual foundation…for how this works with the grayscale target…and swatches for doing the color adjustment.…So please watch that and then come back and follow along.…All right, so what we're going to do…is again, start off with the final version…and then we're going to turn off…that adjustment layer but keep it…so we can do a compare and contrast later.…Then we're going to option or alt and click…and make a new target-based curves adjustment layer.…
