Re: Shadows enhancement

I have been submitting for too many years, images to various photo-libraries. The have all gone digital (or closed down) now, so I have to either shoot digital of scan. At the moment, I am choosing the latter.

Whatever the final output colour space, an almost universal requirement is RGB, 50mb, 8 bit, A3 size. So I work in RGB and LAB for that extra 'boost' if needed. I sharpen and occasionally adjust curves in LAB.

Re: Shadows enhancement

the reason for online photo-libraries asking for an rgb file is because web browers (untill lately) could not show Cmyk Files. everyone has there way of editing an image. Just to let you all know, im not an idiot. Editing in cmyk is not a "Old Way" of doing things. Editing in cmyk is not "ruthlessly destructive". When i started out with my digital press company. We used to just send files away to the press in RGB. My thinking was just like damon. One day, a cleint introduced me to the concept of using cmky to edit images. Holy cow what a change. Not just with printing but all the cool tricks you can do when editing in this mode. Your original goal was to work on editing images dark areas, you found a plugin if i remember corectly so your set to go. so all this cmyk to rgb stuff is way off subject. lol

Re: Shadows enhancement

i have to agree with Damo on this one, and i come from a cmyk do lose a lot of information once you make the conversion, at the very least keep a copy of the original RGB file...
