Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Auto-Power color adjustments, part of Photoshop CS6 New Features.
We now have a couple of new auto color adjustment features,…one of which is associated with the Brightness/Contrast command.…You will find the other when using levels and curves.…Now we've got this washed out photo here.…And Adobe's research suggests that some of the most popular commands in the…software, believe it or not, are these right here under the Image menu: Auto…Tone, Auto Contrast, and Auto color.…And I suppose it's because they are so darn easy to apply.…So you just use Auto Tone and you look at the image and you say nope, that's not better.…

Q: This course was updated on 1/15/2013. What changed?
A: The course was revised to address the new Photoshop features and enhancements bundled with the Creative Cloud update released in December 2012. We added a second chapter to the course, detailing the new enhancements. We cover the Liquify and Blur Galleries, which now support Smart Objects; creating conditional actions; auto-naming merged layers; moving a point with the Pen tool on the fly; creating global default type styles; and copying CSS code from specialty layers. We also cover two improvements to the 3D package included with Photoshop Extended: enhanced 3D lighting with 32-bit color and the new default 3D image-based light. We also updated the exercise files with new files for Chapter 2 and added an introductory video to the beginning of Chapter 2 that outlines the improvements.
