The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers Step Three: Press Command-M (PC: Control-M) to bring up the Curves dialog. Click the black Eyedropper on the black panel of the card (to set shadows), the middle Eyedropper on the gray (for midtones), and the white Eyedropper on the white panel (sets the highlights), and the photo will nearly correct itself. No guessing, no Threshold adjust- ment layers, no using the Info palette to determine the darkest areas of the image--now you know exactly which part of that image should be black and which should be white.
