My values don't match the book
Or is this intended to show how far off the color is from original?
(sorry, its hard being a bit daft and this chapter has been very slow going for me, 6 aspirin so far )
As far as the exercise goes, I wouldn't worry about it! The point is to demonstrate colour correction using curves -- just write down the RGB values you get, do the math, and use your values.
FWIW, i've just checked the values I see, and for me:
* the 50% values are the same
* the 25% values are each 1 less
* the 75% Red value is 55; the others are the same
I finally got the point of the tutorial, its just that I was thinking I was doing it wrong or had something wrong with my machine. I am learning to take the essence of the lessons instead of the letter of the lessons.
I am a bit greedy and keep moving on in the book, so will have to double back and do it all again step by step with a few of my own images to really catch on.
Thanks again for your help!
