    Wrinkles in sky

    Hi folks......I've got a pic with a sky that looks like about 6 pieces and overlapped a bit. They're all the same blue and they don't show up on my computer screen.......just prints from a kiosk. It's hard to describe but I'm sure that there's a name for it and it has probably been discussed...

    Please define "neautral color"

    Thanks ronmatt I'm trying to make neutral colors neutral \:/ :D I use curves to get rid of unwanted color casts. You select the middle eyedropper and click on a part of your image that is SUPPOSED to be neutral and then "pop"... everything looks more like it should (without the color cast)...

    Please define "neautral color"

    Can someone please define what is meant by the term "neutral color"? I would guess that it is any shade between and including black & white on the grey scale? Question 2..........can the middle eyedropper in CURVES be used on any "neutral color"? Thanks in advance, RC [doh]

    Image flattening problems

    [excited] Thank you Jon.....I?ve been in RGB and I tried the merged layer at the top of the stack trick and it?s still no good. I appreciate the link and I have it saved for a later time when I have more time and patience (color management gives me a headache). In the meantime I found a fix. I...

    Image size reduction question

    Thanks Erik.......can you elaborate a little more on this? Are these just random numbers that you picked (out of the "void") to use as an example? Thanks also to Welles and ooptea........yes I guess my expectations are too high. Your input has been helpful......RC
