History doesn't work with conversions though hermes. And if you are making a dupe of the layer and working in just the lightness channel it can pose its own problems. But, yes, it is essentially doing the same as the other techniques.

Chris, duping a layer as back up then converting to lab and editing the lightness layer, toggling back to lab does keep the dodge and burn history. It's possible to view each history movement in lab and move back and forward within history.

I use the lighness channel in lab when Im trying to get more detail into a pic, we dont get fantastic quaility images on my newspaper titles so they need all the help they can get!

For me lab save my life on many occasions!

Heremes

So what you are saying is that you are keeping a psd in Lab mode and saving a converted
RGB or CMYK file as your final, right?

Yes if you are keeping the document in Lab mode than the history is kept. Now that I believe I am clear on what you were saying. : )

Hi Chris, yes thats what I meant, a psd file converted to lab edited then converted into rgb then cmyk. Thats right it does keep it's history, in fact thats the only reason I use that tecnique. Anything that loses it's history would be too risky wouldnt it!!

cheers
