- This is a really good point for us to stop and discuss…the two different methods or approaches that we can use…to evaluate and adjust an image.…The first method is a qualitative approach,…where we just use what we see in the image,…and the data in the histogram, to achieve an…overall adjustment just based upon what we see there.…The second approach is a more quantitative one,…where we bring in numbers, and do a numeric analysis…and a numeric adjustment.…This is where the "Info" panel is going to come in handy.…And as we'll see, in some cases,…a qualitative adjustment is going to be just fine.…
In other cases, a more quantitative approach…will be more appropriate.…Alright, let's just do a quick run-through…to show you the difference between these two methods.…In this case, we're going to perform…a tonal evaluation and adjustment of the image.…We're not going to worry too much about color cast,…although I probably won't be able to stop myself…from at least commenting on the color.…Alright. So we'll create our first curves adjustment layer.…
