A graphical/bitmap image editor without a Curves tool is worse than useless, IMHO. rafe b. ******************** I am right about the curves function not being in PSE. As stated in a previous post, it all depends on the individual and what level of image control a person needs. Similar corrections, although not as fine and precise, can be done with levels and brightness and contrast. It may be all that a particular person requires. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but it is the individual that has to make their own decision based on their own needs. Not everyone is a printing pro and a lesser or different approach may be fine for them. I'm not trying to get into a pissin' contest but the statement that "A graphical/bitmap image editor without a Curves tool is worse than useless, IMHO." is just painting the fence with too broad a brush.
