A good shortcut in Photoshop.
hmm yea its called Auto Contrast but you'd have better results using curves.
or at least by moving the contrast slider by hand.
that image presented was really bad, contrast wise, so it is not wonder that auto contrast improves it a lot.
if i apply auto contrast to most of my images, very often nothing will happen, since they are ok-ish exposed.
I agree, I never use contrast, only curves.
Heh, i end up using a combination of everything.
the Auto Levels, Auto Contrast and Auto Color options under Image>Adjustments are all basic ways of enhancing your image. For those who find curves and levels too much they can be very useful. Use Edit>Fade to reduce the effect if you need to.
I prefer curves too but I've seen myself using these for speed.
I always do them to start with, If i dont like it.. I undo it. Doesnt hurt anything cause sometimes it is.. wow, thats exactly what i wanted. Other times.. not so much.
