Re: [Tutorial] Effectively remove shadow from pict

because then it changes the whole pic and I don't want the highlights blown out.

Try kelbytraining.com or lynda.com if you like video tutorials. Their introductory photoshop courses are phenomenal.

Re: [Tutorial] Effectively remove shadow from pict

At least photoamy seems to have forgotten to duplicate the image (not the layer; "Image"-"Duplicate"), before converting it to grayscale, maybe some of the others experiencing problems forgot that step too?
Thanks for the great tip, I think I'll use it in the future

It kills the transitions! Seems it must be applyed with care, the fruits looks good. I did it just shrinking the histogram in levels, and I see the same resul, or at least, quite the same...

Thanks you hit the nail on the head with what I was doing wrong, I had duplicated the layer not the image. Awesome tutorial worked a treat!
