The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers Step Three: If you're familiar with curves and want to create your own custom curve, start by editing any one of the preset curves by simply clicking-and-dragging any adjustment points. Doing this immedi- ately changes the Tone Curve pop-up menu to Custom, meaning you're free to adjust the curve any way you'd like. If you'd prefer to start from scratch, choose Linear from the Tone Curve pop-up menu, which gives you a flat curve. To add adjustment points, just click along the curve. To remove a point, just click-and-drag it right off the curve (drag it off quickly, like you're pulling off a Band-Aid).
