Default what do curves do????

Im am a complete novice with photoshop and have yet to really try "curves" out. What do they do to enhance the photo. I have played around a little but managed to mess up a photo and that was about it

Do you know what levels do? Levels are just a different interface to what curves do.

Brightness is also just a different interface to curves as well. As is (I think) contrast.

I learned about curves from this page:
http://www.luminous-landscape.com/tu...d_primer.shtml

It says it much better than I ever could.

And, in fact, that who site has both really good pictures and some good tutorials about photoshop and other things.

Was it you who asked for photoshop references last week? I should have listed http://www.luminous-landscape.com, it's a great site for PS info and more. Don't know why it didn't come to mind.

Glad I could help.
