- In this exercise, I want to compare…achieving a tone adjustment without and then with…initially making a color adjustment first.…I think you've got a sense of where I'm going to go…from my earlier movies in this chapter.…And I want to prove to you and show you…why it's important to do a color correction first…and then achieve your tone correction.…Okay, so lets get started.…Let go ahead and make our first curve.…And the first curve we're going…to do here is just going to be…a standard tone correction with no color.…
And we'll call this no color. Tone no color.…We're basically going to do what we did before,…we'll duplicate what we did earlier…with our highlights and shadows.…I've already got the same color sampler point…number one and number two that we said earlier.…And we're going to go ahead and let's just move this up here…so we can see what we're doing.…And we're going to watch these values…and number 242 is what we're shooting for on the highlight…and then around 15 on the shadow end…for our minimum and maximum values.…
