Customizing the Dialog

You may like to take advantage of three different views that the dialog box offers.

■ You can view the grid behind the curve in 10% or 25% views (Figure 3-10). To toggle between the two views, press Alt (Windows), Opt (Mac OS) as you click in the grid.

Figure 3-10: Section view of the Curves dialog box. Left—The default 25% grid view. Right—A 10% grid view, selected by Alt-clicking (Windows), Opt-clicking (Mac OS) in the grid.

■ Enlarge the whole window by clicking the two-view icon at the lower-right corner of the dialog box. The button acts as a toggle between regular and large size.

■ If you have a prepress background and you are used to working in percentages instead of levels, you can click anywhere on the horizontal gradient bar and read the Input/Output values in percentages.

NOTE When you click the gradient bar to alter the display to read in percentages, the 0, 0 shadow and 255, 255 highlight points are flipped, so that the 0, 0% highlight point is at the bottom left and the 100, 100% shadow point is at the upper right.
