Challenge - Digital Challenges : Using Curves "the day we flew"

This weeks challenge is one that I never do without!  To use the curve adjustment layer  in photoshop.  First you can find it in Layer> New Adjustment Layer>Curves.  Basically is brightens whites, darkens darks and pops your grays.  It's your caffeine for photos!  I think it turns a  boring photo into a cool photo.  You  can use curves adjustment on colour and black and white.  With my photo I have chosen to do black and white.  I have added a screen shot of my Mac with the photo before and after.   You simply push the line up and down in places till you get the desired effect.  I have included a screen shot of where I push the graph line up and down too but I think it all comes down to experimenting and seeing what you like. 

You aren't limited to using the curve tool on photos in a layout. Sometimes i use it on photos of layouts when they are dreadfully dingy and dark.  Instant sun!

If you can include a  photo of your picture before hand I'd love to see it to check out the difference.

Love Chelsea
