- Well so far in this course, I have been…all about being a control freak about my tone and color.…I want my neutral diffuse highlights to be really neutral…and get them right at five percent.…I want to make sure any mid tones neutral…are right on the money there.…I want to control my contrast…with a little bit lighter quarter tones…but darker three quarter tones.…So all about control.…Well, there are circumstances…where quick and dirty is good enough,…and I'm going to show you a set of tools…that we can use to make quick corrections,…but with some cautionary notes along the way.…
And here in this exercise, we're going to…use two images that we've already used…and a third one that we haven't used yet.…Let's start with our anchor point image.…Remember our challenge here was…we didn't have any highlight or quarter tone data,…and we had a bit of a color cast,…in this image we had a red green color cast…where the red and yellow were sticking out here.…Let's go ahead and make our first curves adjustment layer…and we'll option and alt click…
