Bringing down highlights and bringing up shadows in PP CS6
  • I have a problem with the shadows and highlights effect. If I don't use the auto amounts setting the image starts to flicker, and even with auto settings it makes the video look crap, like crap Photomatix HDR photos. What should I use to manage highlights and shadows? I tried curves, but it doesn't bring down the highlights, I can't bring up the shadows properly.

  • Can do it with fast colour corrector with the sliders

  • What sliders exactly?

  • Input levels and output levels. Left side in shadows and righ side is highlights, gamma in middle

  • Thanks. It doesn't work as well as the Shadows Highlights effect, if I bring down the whites in the output levels it darkens the whole image.

  • There are many different ways to do this, but the fastest and easiest is with the Luma filter.

  • Luma filter? I can only find Luma curve, Luma corrector, Luma key.
