Project 5

Create dramatic images by building in some non-destructive contrast

One of the most important image adjustment features in a professional photographer’s workflow is Curves (a sort of Levels command on steroids). Adobe in their wisdom decided not to include this feature in their user-friendly Elements version. Curves does not appear in the Enhance menu or Adjustment layer menu – but this project shows you a way to hot-wire your version of Elements to increase your post-production editing power to maximum performance.
