Re: Pete's Photoshop tricks

Just to add a little snippet to Pete's comments about using the Exposure and Blacks sliders to optimise the histogram:

If you press the Alt key (for Windoze, not sure what the Mac equivalent is) while adjusting the slider the image display changes to show highlight or shadow clipping as appropriate. This means you can see which areas are going to block or blow as you pull them in. Hard to describe but much easier to see. It also works for (highlight) Recovery but appears not to for Fill Light.

Ciao ... John
