    Hi,

    There was a question, on another Forum, about whether one could use Channels in Photoshop - the answer was dont bother, use Curves!

    As this is completely wrong, I thought I would write up how to simply use Channel Blending.

    If you have a moment, I'd like to know if you feel this write up is easy to understand - or any other comments.

    Thanks

    Um, why could you NOT have done that with curves or levels? They're both really powerful tools.

    What if I wanted to darken the light blues and brighten the dark reds? Curves to the rescue. ;)

    Excellent questions - not easy to answer in a few words, so I've described why at the bottom of the Blending Page on my web site.

    Thank you
