Shadow/Highlight Behavior
« on: October 15, 2011, 02:58:55 PM »

I was wondering if anybody has had this problem and is there a solution? Sometime, but not always when I use the shadow slider in Shadow/Highlight in PSCS5 it does the opposite(reduces highlights) before it starts to open up the shadows. This can be pretty annoying.
Help would be appreciated......Eric Chan, Jeff Schewe ??? anybody

Do you have an example that you can use to illustrate this?

Try setting the black and white threshold values to 0.00 for both and see if that doesn't help.

Thanks for responding Eric..... changing the black & white clip values to 0 seems to have worked. What was happening when I was sliding the shadow slider to open shadows it would first reduce highlights and I would have to keep sliding further until it would finally start to open shadows but the highlight reduction already took effect and stayed as part of the equation.

Wolfman - You also want to watch the Color Correction slider - it's really a Saturation control and the default setting of +20 is almost always too much. I set it back to zero, along with the zero point threshold settings, set an approximate shadow setting and save it off as a new default. It's a much closer starting point than what come from Adobe.
