Working with target-based corrections

In this video, I would like to show you how you can do a fast and accurate color correction of a scanned image using an embedded 10 step or 10 swatch grayscale target. Before we actually get into the technique, let's make sure we understand the concept, so we're not just pushing buttons. This is a 10 step grayscale target, one that I've created specifically for digital photography, and for scanning, and it's all grayscale. These are actually grayscale values that are painted on these swatches. If you look carefully at the target on the right-hand side, you will see there are RGB values.

For swatch number 1, I've got this set at 242 which is a 5% white highlight. Remember, there are two different scales that we tend to work with in digital imaging, one is the 0 to 100% scale, where 0 is white, and black is 100%, then there is the 0 to 255 scale where 255 is pure white and 0 is black, they're inverted. Here, we're using RGB values, just like Photoshop does and ...
