Custom curves adjustment
« on: March 13, 2018, 09:28:59 AM »
Hi experts out there... now I did this once, do you think I can remember how and I can't find it anywhere on the web.  There is a way to set the curves numbers for white and black ie- 244 for white in rgb lets say 14 for black making it a preference every time you use the curves adjustment tool. Deke McClellon demonstrated it at some point when setting up your photoshop settings... I can't find it.. can anyone help out there?? I have a mental block on this one..

thanks
Lynn :cool:

Hi Lynn. Open your Curves Layer and Double Click the Black Eye Drop and the Color Picker will open. Set the RGB to your numbers. Repeat for gray and white eyedroppers.  ;)

Lynn, thanks for asking that question.  Whenever I need to install Photoshop again I always forget how to set these numbers so that they become the new default. 
I will make a note of it this time.  :-[
Thanks Shadow!

Don't remember which Taz Tally color course ... 15 / 126 /245 are the numbers I shoot for. Glad to know someone else stares blankly every once in awhile  ;D
