Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Gradient adjustments, part of Photoshop CC Image Cleanup Workshop.
Sometimes an image cleanup task is really more of an adjustment, but an adjustment …that affects a specific area of an image. And this image provides an example of that. …For whatever reason I ended up with some brightening along the bottom edge of the photo. …And it sort of seems to taper off as it moves upward into the image, and so I …need to apply a targeted adjustment. Essentially I want to darken down that …portion of the image and have it very smoothly taper off into the rest of the image. …I think a curves adjustment will work well for that.…
And specifically a curves adjustment that affects only this small portion of the photo. …I'll start off by adding a curves adjustment layer. …So I'll click on the Add Adjustment Layer button at the bottom of the layers panel …and then choose curves from the pop up menu. …I'll simply drag the curve downward a bit, and in this case, initially I'm …going to drag it down a lot. I want an exaggerated adjustment so that …I can see a little more clearly exactly what's going on in the image. …
