Whats the photoshop tool that lets you sync the contrast and brightness between layers?

like to brighten or darken a section of an old photgraph...

For the aspiring artists:

I use a combination of level-adjustment, brightness/contrast adjustment, and saturation adjustment mostly. These are all found through image>adjustments in Photoshop CS and CS2. For issues such as image /quality/ matching, you will most likely need to toy with the noise level of the higher-quality photo. This is found in the filters tool selection.

Quick tips for successful image manipulation:
-Don't use too much blurring in any way. This usually detracts from the realism
-Avoid enlarging anything without the proper plugins. This makes for poor quality in most cases.
-Be sure the lighting of both topics that you are merging is coming from the same angle, or else everything will look fake!
-Changing hues is usually not as succssful as messing with the color-balance tool because the cb tool has more control over dark, mid, and light tones
-Use the masking tool, don't erase. You jsut might screw up and masks help eliminate the problem of irreversibility
-Try to get the "multiply" mode for added brush effects to work in your favor, rather than changing the opacity of a layer over another (it just sort of works smoother)

-Don't listen to ANYTHING I say too closely ;) -Breaking rules is tuh-awesome

Have fun yall!

BIGGER HEAD LINK^

It's pretty low quality cuz the head we had originally was so small, and the plugin isn't /magical/ but here ya go. you can resize it however smaller and get a better quality image.

Come to think of it, all we ever see is that same exact photo of Mike. Very suspicious. Reminds me of the Alvar Hanso pic in Lost.

It's too bad you guys can't get a copy of the original photo of Mike(used in the cover of his book "Mind Over Matters" I assume). That way, we could downsize it to our liking.

I know, I'm picky!

Mike, like Kenny Rogers, gets a new head




I was lazy and did not even try to make it SuperMike in the logo.

You know how hard it is to get a picture of Bill? I guess he's afraid of having his soul trapped...
