REPLACING THE PREFERENCES TO RESET PHOTOSHOP

The easiest way to cure basic Photoshop ills is to replace a corrupted
Preferences file. The easiest way to do that is to simply delete the file and let
Photoshop generate a new one to replace it. To restore Photoshop to its
default settings, hold down (command-option-shift) [Ctrl+Alt+Shift] when
starting the program.

*** PHOTOSHOP CURVES SETTINGS ***




Photoshops Curves Function must be set this way!

NOTE: The lower gradient bar is set left to right, light to dark.
In older versions of Photoshop click the right lower gradient bar
to change settings. In newer versions, click the Pigment/Ink %
button as shown.
