Re: Curves are hard to use.

Some people have a problem with the concept of curves.  They are a wonderful tool, but I have been on a internet class when a smart, knowledgeable user, just could not grasp.  With a lot of patience, the user got it, but it was not easy.

Some grasp it easily, but for some it is a real challenge.  If you are a PC user, there is a plug in- Curvermeister. It works in photoshop and photoshop elements.  Try  The host there is very patient.

Bottomline, LR sliders are okay for quick snapshots, but every image needs one or two passes with curves.  They can be subtle, they can sledgehammer.
