Image Correction Made Easier with Photoshop CS

The techniques I’ve just described have been available with all recent versions of Photoshop. Once you’ve learned to use them, you’ll want to explore some of the more advanced tools introduced or perfected with Photoshop CS.

Photoshop’s new Shadow/Highlight dialog box does what the Brightness/Contrast controls should have done in the first place. As you’ll recall, the Brightness/Contrast sliders darken/lighten and adjust the contrast of all the pixels in an image. So, when you have a dark area that needs a bit of brightening, adjusting the Brightness slider provides a lighter tone in the dark area, but also makes highlight areas that were probably just fine brighter, too.
