photoshop- post processing methods?
would like to learn from you about how to post process photos with photoshop, read about that basics are contrast, brightness adjustment, but all these can be achieved by using levels.. how about curve? does any certain shape of curve helps?
I learn something like contrast mask, using a duplicate layer, to saturate, to invert and then make that layer blending mode 'overlay'.. that helps to bring out some details on the underexposure area..
Got any experts care to share some tips.. or steps by steps tutorials to show..

Do a search and you will find it. It has been posted many times. If not here then the internet.

you should not get the scott kelby (CS2 book for digital photographers) as it does not have much stuff on curves.
However, it is a USEFUL book for BEGINNERS as it has DETAILED instructions on how to do a lot of stuff in PS.
