Hi, I'm new & confused :-)

Either I am really stupid or this is the most complicated site I've joined. If I can figure out how to get around in here I know I will be smart enough to do my photography. :-) I have never used Photo Shop, but am now up to my neck in Photo Shop CS 2. I know there is one setting that is automatic (mostly light balance) & will correct almost any photo. I knew it at one time, but cannot find it now. Can anybody help? Please don't direct me to another forum. I have spent hours registering & joining & trying to find out how to post. I don't know how to go anywhere else. I guess I am hopeless. :-( Please
email me, I'll never find my way back back here again. :-)

Hi, Sisyphus,
My version of PS is CS3. I'm assuming that there isn't much difference from the CS2 version--So, here's how I do it...

Click on IMAGE.
Click on ADJUSTMENTS
Click on AUTO LEVELS or
AUTO CONTRAST or
AUTO COLOR

Cheers,
MJ

H Sisphus,
Do a google search for photoshop tutorial, adding the topic you want and you will find tones of help. That is a very good way to learn.
good luck.

The on-line tutorials are the only way to learn photoshop provided that you already have a grasp of PS's intuitivenes. Buy a manual on 'photoshop for beginners' and follow all of it's training exersises until you've acquired some of it's nomenclature and filter navigation.

The on line tutorials I've seen assume that you already have a moderate grasp of PS's commands. You can learn about the tools in PS from the book and you can learn how to apply those tools from the on-line tutorials.

Cheers,
MJ
