Bleeding Blacks

Hi Guys,

I've done a search for this but with no luck. Basically, I was at a seminar at which one of the speakers briefly mentioned using a "Diffusion technique to bleed blacks" in a photo.

Unfortunately, I missed what was meant by this, so could somebody please offer a few ideas?

I think it has something to do with isolating black areas of an image and then darkening them to make a 'blacker' black, but I may be wrong!

Many thanks!

Re: Bleeding Blacks

Maybe if you put the comment in the context of whatever the speaker was talking about, it may help others understand. People do different things for different end results, such as making an RGB image look pretty for the web or for printing.

If you can post an example image, there are probably 1000 people here who can tell you 10,000 ways to do it.

But did you get the answer from this thread?
