Re: How to achieve 'perfect' whites in Hi Key?

I haven't got LR - but in The GIMP using curves it is easy enough to get a white background without impacting on the other tones. Looking at the curves will show a peak on the RHS, fix a point just to the left of this and take the remainder of the line straight up to the top, this will give you pure white for everything to the right of the fixed point, but not alter anything to the left. Might well work in LR.
