Re: Curves are hard to use. blend modes

I've gone back and tried Curves again - nah...it's not working for me. Changing the blend mode to luminosity did improve things slightly but it's still yucky. i've tried everything - using the arrows, nudging them slightly (trust me - my S curve is very very mild - anything more and it looks terrible) but still Levels wins hands down on ease of use and also ultimately the quality speaks for Levels.

extra info - i'm editing on the soft proof copy as it gives me the best paper/screen match.

I'm giving up on curve and will use Levels as my main contrast tool.

There's the problem then.

You're working in the most confined space.

Akin to practicing Tai-Chi in a closet.
