The ABC of Photography – Curves

This powerful Photoshop tool enables you to adjust the exposure and contrast of an image. By altering the shape of the curve, different areas of tone can be lightened or darkened by varying amounts. By altering the curves for each of the different colour channels, the colour balance of the image can also be altered to create special effects, or simply to correct for unwanted colour casts.

Elements’ version of Curves, called Adjust Colour Curves, is more limited than Photoshop’s Curves.
