Re: Pscs4 - cant seem too toogling between curvepo

You now have to use the + and - keys to move between curve points. There is also what I like to call a new a 'pointy finger' icon on the curves panel which allows you to drag up and down in the image area to adjust tonal values. you can also switch to the eyedropper tool (i) to place points

The disadvantages with this new arrangement in my opinion are 1 speed, its slower because of real time display on complex files, and 2 the shortcuts are no longer ergonomic as they were. Anyone with experience of curves will find the new setup really fucking annoying at first.

I made a post in this thread about two workarounds if you want to get the old curves dialog (along with some of its shortcuts) back … http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/pho...tml#post215324

very annoying indeed, even with the fix from the supplied link it still slows me down so i'm back to cs3 for now...

Re: Pscs4 - how to toggle between curvepoints..

i can see this is gonna be a nightmare. up to my eyes in end of year budgets and editorials...not time to get my hands on a copy, or even think about trying to work in it.

i use every little shortcut and what not, so i will need a good slow period to adjust to this, as well as redo my 25 or so actions. with the economy, looks like i might get that slow period in 1st quater 09.

Re: Pscs4 - how to toggle between curvepoints..

I've had lack of sleep trying to get jobs out before xmas and haven't had time to look into it but I know since upgrading I can't find out how to see clipping in curves since upgrading to CS4. Anyone?
