Hi ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_N.gif', '/') + 1) . ' fosofos, I believe it does, indeed, work in CS2. I had just learned how to use that feature just before upgrading to CS3.

Good luck with this technique, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' desertoddity! Let me know if you find anything wrong with the instructions, so I can update the tutorial, if necessary.

Many thanks for this helpful and extremely well-written tutorial. Alas, the Ctrl/Cmd click maneuver in Curves does not work in CS2--another reason to upgrade.


It works in CS2. Might be the Alt key, but it defintely works as I use it all the time.

Here's another way to do this, which I didn't include in the tutorial...

With the Curves dialog open, hold down the Ctrl key down (Command key on a Mac) and click on a part of the image. You will notice a small black square on the tonal curve line. You can let go of the Ctrl (or Command) key. Now use your keyboard's up or down arrow to raise or lower (respectively) that point on the curve.

I use this procedure in CS3, but could someone verify that it works in CS2?


Nice trick! I don't have CS2, but it works in PS7, so I'd assume it would have carried over.

TIP: To aid in tonal curve adjustment, move your cursor to an area of an image and click-and-hold (drag) across that area. While dragging across the area, the cursor (pointer) turns into a pen icon. Also, while dragging, notice the small square on the tonal curve line that is moving in conjunction to your dragging. To adjust the tones and contrast in the area of the image where you were dragging, click on the curve in the position where the square appeared and adjust accordingly.


Okay, I have PhotoShop CS2 and I don't see this when I click and drag on the picture. What am I doing wrong?


You have the curves dialogue box open, right? When you click and drag on the image, a small square will slide up and down the line in the curves box to show the value of the area over which your cursor is passing.

Thanks so much for helping me acquire this powerful tool for my repertoire!

My pleasure, Jeb. :-)

i had another approach on emulation the HDR effect, as you can see from the pic above. and it worked very well, i think, i compared it the method by processing a picture with my method and via HDR , the result were very similar. of course tone mapping with photomatix is a 2 step process, emulating with my method is 30-60 min process.


This is very nice, I quite like the effect. Would you care to elaborate on your method??

Anyone know if Photoshop 7 has the capability to do this? I had a jpeg that I saved as a tiff, and it is only giving me the 8 and 16, not the 32-bit option. It's not grayed out, it just isn't on the menu. Does this mean I can't do this?


I have Photoshop 8, and have the same question. I do not have the 32 bit option. Does anyone know why?


It was introduced with CS2 (v 9.0) I believe.
