Re: How do I get this effect? Sort of pseudo high

Hi Saby:

Here is a link to two pictures with this effect applyed. Here it works. I have been trying with other kind of pictures and i have seen that I have that bad efect ( like solar efect) in the very dark areas, maybe solid black. I will look one example and post it for you.

In the pictures I link here, I have added a soft light layer at the end to increase the shadows intensity and achieve some contrast. What do you think of it?

thanks a lot Saby, I think you control very good this technique.

Saby ~ i know you've talked endlessly about aim, and told people how/why to use it,
but can you humour me and once again explain the main advantage of using
this profile?

What in an image makes you turn to it?

nice work over all, ceiling should be abit lighter to me, I use this to my daily work when something need to be lightened, often it's better than using the screen layers or 'Shadow/Highlight' function -the histogram shows it exactly-and it can be automated because u can't lose detail.

this is for correction, where the main light of the picutre too dark, it doesn't affect the pixels in the highlight so it can be automated and used every kinda lighting. There is a great example @ the gamma included errors section here: http://www.aim-dtp.net/aim/evaluation/gie/index.htm about

sometimes it is great to darken picture which too light and U won't lose detail in shadow because it affect only the gamma curve.

make this 2 action to Urself and use them

to lighten:
"convert to profile AdobeRgb
assign profile AIM...
convert to profile AdobeRgb"


to darken:
"convert to profile AdobeRgb
convert to profile AIM...
assign profile AdobeRgb"
