Task 2 How to Optimize the Tonal Range

When you capture an image with a digital camera or scanner, chances are that the tonal range in your image is lacking in highlights or shadows. An optimized tonal range is one in which the darks are completely black, the highlights are white, and the other tones are well distributed. In Photoshop, you adjust the tonal range of an image with the Levels option. Not only does adjusting tone ensure good contrast and detail, but it also can correct any unwanted color casts. Even if the image looks pretty good to start with, optimizing the tone can improve things even further.

1. Open the Info Palette

Open the image for which you want to adjust the tonality. Select Window, Info to open the Info palette.
