Example text

In the dialog box, adjust the slider to the left or right to control the tones. To learn how to read histograms (the jagged stuff above the slider), see pages 50–51. Posterize This limits the total number of tones, producing images with very little detail. In the dialog box, setting the number of levels at 2 produces an image made up of only two colors. With higher settings, more tones will be used. CHAPTER FIVE Advanced Color and Exposure The automated tools covered in the previous chapter are very useful in many situations, but sometimes they just don’t provide the degree of control needed.

In this example, the histogram is very tall near the highlight end of the histogram. That tells us that most of the tones in this image are pretty bright. Notice the height of the histogram over the midtone slider—it’s much lower. This tells us that fewer of the tones in the image fall into this category. Now, look at the histogram above the black slider. As you can see, there’s nothing there; none of the tones DIGITAL CAMERAS P hotoshop isn’t the only place you’ll find histograms—many digital cameras also allow you to display them for each image.

T he eyedroppers provide a quick way to remove color casts and set the overall tonal range of your photograph. To use them, simply open an image and go to Image>Adjustments> Levels.

Set Black Point To use the Set Black Point eyedropper, simply click on its icon at the lower right of the dialog box (see page 49). Your cursor will then turn into an eyedropper. Move the eyedropper over the image and click on an area of the image that you want to become pure black.
