Join Lee Varis for an in-depth discussion in this video Lesson 7: Curves and Hue/Saturation, part of Beyond Skin: Going Deeper with Photoshop CS3.

White point, black point; this…image has clipped highlights over here.…We are just going to leave that alone.…And there isn't anything that is particularly black in this image, so right now…I'm really just concerned about the skin tone.…So I'll bail on the Threshold adjustment.…We'll go right into Curves and let's place a fix sampler on the skin here.…
