Sample text

PERFORMANCE TIP Hold down the Alt key when adjusting either the Exposure or Shadows slider to view the point at which highlight or shadow clipping begins to occur (the point at which pixels lose detail in one or more channels). Alternatively you can check the Shadows and Highlights boxes above the main image window instead of holding down the Alt key. 25 Part 1: Optimize 3 . Set the image to 100% and click on the Detail tab to access the sharpness and noise reduction controls. The Luminance Smoothing and Color Noise Reduction sliders (designed to tackle the camera noise that occurs when the image sensors’ ISO is high) should only be raised from 0 if you notice image artifacts such as noise appearing in the image window.

The adjustment feature is called ‘Levels’, but when you are presented with the virtual mountain range on opening the Levels dialog box, you begin to wonder what the clever people at Adobe were thinking of when they gave this indispensable adjustment feature its wonderful name (I think it’s called irony). 16 BITS/CHANNEL IMAGE ON DVD Levels - optimized quality starts here Part 1: Optimize 1. In the illustration above one might be forgiven for thinking that the black peaks in the dialog box are an indication of how high the mountains are in the image, but no, it is really an indicator of how many pixels of each tone are present in the image.

With more expensive DSLR cameras set to 100 ISO it is common to leave all three sliders set to 0. It is recommended that you only perform a gentle amount of sharpening in the RAW dialog box if you intend to selectively sharpen the image in the main image-editing workspace (see ‘Project 7 - Sharpening’ for localized sharpening techniques that are unavailable in the camera RAW dialog box). PERFORMANCE TIP The Luminance Smoothing and Color Noise Reduction sliders can remove subtle detail and color information that may go unnoticed if the photographer is not careful to pay attention to the effects of these sliders.
