Video Tutorial: Color Correction?Curves or Levels?

How to bring out the detail in dark areas of an image By Deke McClelland
For anyone using Photoshop to correct the highlights and shadows in an image, that is the question. In this lesson from "Total Photoshop 6," Deke McClelland first attempts to bring out shadowy details using the Levels command. For this particular image, however, Levels won't do the trick. This looks like a job for Curves! Deke takes you "point by point" through the Curves dialog box, dramatically improving the image by creating the perfect curve. Finally, Deke demonstrates how to easily compensate for the loss of saturation, which can be an unpleasant side effect of Curves. The next time you find yourself in a "Levels or Curves" quandary, you'll be glad you watched this clip.
