If the corrections (to R, G, B) are consistent, and if you can make the corrections with, say, a single use of the Levels Tool or Curves tool, then you could always SAVE those settings and apply them at a later time, to any image you choose. That's why those dialogs have "Save" and "Load" options, after all. Presumably, somebody thought that corrections might be re-useable. Using Actions you could get a whole lot more sophisticated than that, of course. In some respects, this is the "do it yourself by eyeball" alternative to ICC profiles. Kind of crude, but hey, the price is right. This is *not* a technique I use, by the way; I simply brought it up as an option for Barbara. rafe b. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Please: Stay on topic.
