    So my friend was telling me about a feature in PS where you can pick three tones and then use them to make the picture with very little light look really good?

    It was lastnight at a club so I'm not sure what the hell he was talking about, but does that ring a bell to anyone?

    I just need to know what function this is so I can look for a tutorial.

    Thanks.

    Was he talking about Curves?

    Ive seen a similar tutorial in a book ive got.

    where you take a reading from the shadow, highlights and midtones/greyest area. Meant to work well on low light stuff

    That's basically what i've been told.

    I just need to know how to use it properly. I can't usually work with anything that I don't understand. Like if I don't understand what the feature is doing to the picture, I won't know how to properly use it.
