In this chapter, we explored the many tools that Photoshop provides for adjusting images. We learned about the powerful Levels and Curves commands, how to add adjustment layers, channel mixing, how to use filters to repair images, and much, much more. With the skills we've learned in this chapter, we can spin the straws of photography into gold, covering the traces of our own embarrassing point-and-shoot blunders, and those of others as well! In the next chapter, we'll explore the tools and effects that can help us to manipulate and use images for web design.
