Re: Curves are hard to use.

Don't use them. You can do the same thing in other ways.

Check this out:  http://scottkelby.com/2009/the-diminishing-role-of-curves-in-photoshop/

Kelby has gotten more and more strident on the issue since 2009.  Curves are the old way of doing things.  It's great for people who already know how to use it, but people who are learning photo editing now needn't bother to learn how to use it.  It's kept primarily for legacy reasons.

Even if he goes a bit too far, it's still true that you don't have to learn how to use curves any more.  You certainly can get by without it.
