Now, the interesting thing about this dialog is we can use this in order to…create some pretty interesting effects whether corrective or creative, and here…what I want to do is simply get creative.…So one of the first things I am going to do is I am going to bring out some of…the detail in my shadows, and I am going to do this because I know that later I…am going to be adding in some more contrast.…So here, you can see the before and after.…
