Really, it doesn't matter much as that wasn't intended to be pure content. I was simply saying in that part of the tutorial that you can use the Key adjustment to burn or dodge an image ;)

That was a wonderful tut - and in fact, I had no idea that this is possible! SO nice! Thank you very much for it.

Here's what I did:

...and this is what it became after working through the tut:

Edit today (July 22nd) I was looking for a thing called "Levels" in the correction (adjustment) section of the program but it's not there, so I did it by hitting crtl+L .... Question: Is "levels" a regular program feature and should be there or is it a plugin?

Edit of July 23rd Today I realized that in the German release of the program the translation for "levels" (the shortcut of which is ctrl+L) is completely different from what "Levels" would normally mean, that's why I had trouble finding it in the Adjustments Menu. In German it says "Manuelle Anpassung". Maybe there are some more Germans here who are not so much familiar with the graphics slang... hope this helps. ;)
But I think I can guess why the translator translated it that way: probably in order not to confuse "layers" and "levels" which in German could be translated by one and the same word. ;)

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

I think the link is broken. Therefore, a kind request to restore it again: this subject seems interesting! :)

Hello, :aagh:

I ran into a major problem with the download - I clicked on the Mediafire PDF on the very first post and this phony anti-virus program popped-up instead of the PDF and said my computer was infected with many different viruses. Well I shut my computer off and my modem to prevent the fake program from downloading on my computer. I've seen these fake anti-virus programs before and they can wreak havoc on your computer.

I thought I should bring this to your attention ASAP.

Thanks for your time.
