Cloning with a Solar Curve

Re: Cloning with a Solar Curve

I usually use a simpler curve and a black/white adjustment layer, but this seems like a very nice way of doing it.... will experiment with it if I get some time.

Thanks!

Camaera Sensor Dust Detector

I have been using this Solar Curve, and its inverse, for some time to detect dust particles on the sensors of my digital cameras. Like the curve described here, the 2nd curve is the inverse - start with the 1st point at 0 and make every other point 255. If there is any dust particles or sensor anomalies they show up when you apply these curves to an image. One curve will detect white / light colored particles, the other curve black / dark ones. You will see immediately the specks that recurr in every image in the same location.
Regards, Murray

Re: Cloning with a Solar Curve

i have used curves to exaggerate contrast, but what advantage does this curve have specifically over a sharp "S" curve?

Re: Cloning with a Solar Curve

PZ, this curve will bring out everything your eye will likely miss on screen....but the printing press will not be that forgiving!

only way to really see how it works is to try it out....good example, open a good image with like a white-ish wall or background and then add a solar curve and now you will see all the dirt you need to clone.
