Join Taz Tally for an in-depth discussion in this video Fine-tuning your curves, part of Exploring Photoshop: Mastering Curves.
- In this video, I just want to cover…a couple of more tools that exist…in the Photoshop curves adjustment layer dialog box,…and that's the ability to manually edit…and also to smooth your curves.…Let me show you how this works,…and also give you some cautionary notes…about using particularly the smoothing feature.…Okay, we're going to get started with…and we're going to use that accurate curve that we created…in the previous accurate target base curves adjustment,…and we're going to right-click here,…and we're just going to Duplicate this layer.…
And we're going to call this the Smoothed version.…Alright, the Smoothed version.…And, let's turn this off, there we go.…So we're just looking at the Smoothed base version.…And the way you would want to use this,…a reason where you might want to use this,…is let's go take a look at the blue channel.…Option, or Alt, 5,…and you'll notice when we made our target base correction,…sometimes you end up with some…somewhat abrupt changes along the pass…'cause we did it with 10 specific points on there.…
