  • Point curve adjustments made to a single R,G, or B channels in the Tone Curve tab can be reset a channel curve is adjusted.
  • Photoshop CS5 and Bridge show different values for the image resolution in certain images.  Photoshop and Bridge are not changing the image resolution, but displaying different values.
