Curves are one of the best utilities in Photoshop for making lighting adjustments to an image. This feature may seem complex at first, but once you understand its power, it will become your ‘go to’ feature!

In our ten-minute Coffee Break Course, Using Curves in Adobe Photoshop, Envato Tuts+ instructor Kirk Nelson will teach you how to understand the histogram, make targeted adjustments to increase the contrast of an image, and even how to remove a color cast from a photo.
