    Dave,

    What does the author means by "Set background channel to black" ? What if the background IS the image and there is no background "channel" per se? Must the background be converted to a layer and the background color be set to black?

    I ask this, because my hopes for maybe miraculously salvaging some badly underexposed photos of people against a bright background were just dashed when I tried the technique.

    Maybe I'm not applying the technique properly. Or maybe the photos just don't have shadow detail---which seems to be the case because no manipulation of the Curves curve in the shadows brings out usable contrast. However, for future candidate images of this type, I would at least like to know I am not mis-applying the method.

    I have no choice other than grey in PS 7 when I get to step 3.

    Is it possible that an earlier version had the choice of setting the
    background channel to black?

    It does seem to work just fine with "grey".
