You are absolutely right ... I always try to remember it particularly when using Options available from a particular PS Version onwards...but sometimes it slips my mind ...

In this case, however, my
I balanced Shadows/Highlights
didn't refer to a Tool but to what was done ... and here I've used Curves and Levels ...

Most of the times I found that there are 'alternative' ways of doing things ... the most popular are:

* For 'lifting' the shadows is Katrin Eismann's Fill Flash Technique as explained by Doug Nelson:
1) have orig loaded in Photoshop
2) Image>Duplicate
3) Convert Duplicate to Grayscale
4) Apply Gaussian Blur (3 pixels in this case, more for larger files)
5) Image>Adjust>Invert
6) Make orig window active and Select>Load Selection, under Document select your grayscale image, under Channel Select Black or Background Gray (book differs from my experience here)
7) New Layer Via Copy
8) activate Preserve Transparency
9) Edit>Fill>50% Gray
10) change Blend mode to Color Dodge
11) erase anywhere you don't want dodging

You can duplicate layer to increase effect, or crank down opacity to decrease
*And for overall balancing Shadows/Highlights is the Contrast Mask method described here..

Hope this helps.
