thanks so much for any help you can offer!

Vibrant Images

I've recently learned how to do curves and have been experimenting a bit. I came up with a way to brighten up images and make them more vibrant.

Go from This: to This:

I used Photoshop CS2 and I'm sure it's pretty translatable to earlier versions of Photoshop. I imagine it can also be done in other programs, but I'm not sure how.

For this tutorial you should have a basic understanding of curves, adjusment layers, and cropping. This is a short and simple tutorial (8 steps total).

Curves tutorial

I had some requests on how I was using curves, so I threw together a tutorial. It's not the best icon ever(it is REALLY hard to define what you are doing with curves) I hope it helps someone though.

Tutorial made in Gimp, but I'm sure it's translatable(or I'll make it be lol)

Go from This to using curves!

EDIT: lmao, I'm a fruit. Follow me!

Oh, and I should mention, it's pretty image heavy, so not recommended for slow connections.
