The difference between 8 bit and 16 bit is huge. Can you give some more detail about the manipulation that was done here. Personally, I would have selected the sky and the grass seperately. Then I would have applied different corrections for each selection and saved the image as *.psd, i.e. with the curve corrections. That way I do not change the origional image and can make as many changes to the curves/levels as I wish. I use this always with 8-bit after making major adjustments in 16-bit. If there is a better technique (and I am sure there is) please give us some more info. Thanks, Rob __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? LAUNCH - Your Yahoo!
