I have a list of very good articles on using curves/levels found here:

http://members.ozemail.com.au/~binar...V_links.html#C

Just scroll down to the curves, levels and colour correction section of links.

Perhaps most specific to this section of the thread is the following link, although all of the articles are worth reading and practicing a few times - curves is a very powerful tool:

http://www.creativepro.com/story/feature/13811.html

The important thing is that you can hold down CMD/CTRL or add other key modifiers to place edit points on the curve for the region of the image that the mouse is over on the image. This could be the composite curve or on separate individual curves.

Have fun,

Stephen Marsh.

Thanks Stephen, lots of great useful information at that site.
The thing I was questioning is how Mig see's a dot moving along the curve when he moves his mouse over spots in an image. I know control and clicking sets a point along the curve, maybe that's what he meant.

KenB, If you're using a mouse, hold down the left mouse button as you move the cursor over the image - then you'll see a moving point on the curve that corresponds to the area your cursor is moving over. If you're using a graphics tablet, be sure the pen tip is touching the tablet (doesn't have to be hard pressure) as you move over the image.

Hope this helps, Jeanie

Harsh shadows removed

Thanks very much much for all the good ideas.

I combined some and came up eith this.

Actually I am quite satisfied.

I first brought the window posts closer to white and then started copying and pasting. Actually this was quite simple when I come to think of it.

Most of the time I've been trying various methods and learned a lot of other things along. So this excersise was very helpfull.

Thank you all very much and I'll try to stay active here !

Regards,

Edwin
