Join Julieanne Kost for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding edges, part of The Art of Photoshop Compositing.
…As we can see from the histogram here, blending…these images together resulted in a final composite that really…doesn't make use of the entire dynamic range from…black to white and I find this happens quite often.…It's one of the reasons that I like to work with smart objects,…so that I can actually go in and change them after the fact.…Now, we could do that.…The other thing we could do is we could add an adjustment layer at…the top of our layer stack.…So if I wanted to quickly see what this looked like when the image uses…the entire dynamic range, we could go down…to our adjustment layer and then choose Curves.…
Now I'm going to hide the histogram for a minute, because…we actually have a larger histogram down here in the Properties panel.…And I'm going to hold down the Option key or the Alt…key and then I'm going to move the White Point slider…here over to the left until I start seeing white in my image.…Then I know I've gone too far and I can back that off.…Then, I'll do the same with the black,…still holding down the Option or the Alt key.…
