Learning LAB

Discussion in 'Retouching and Post Processing' started by the_traveler, Mar 29, 2007.

  1. Using Lab Color from Dan Margulis' book and having a trivial technical issue.
    When he marks color reference points on a photo, on the info palette the values of these points appear and remain below the two normal color readouts.

    I can insert the points on the pix but the data only appears transiently on the two intial sets above.
    I can't figure out (or remember if I ever knew) how to make these four sets appear.

    Help appreciated.

    Dear Lew,

    Do you mean pressing "i" to select Eyedropper tool and then Shift-mouse clicking to add anchor points to info palette? Shift-mouse drag to move points, Alt-Shift-mouse click to delete?
  3. I can add the points but the numbers don't show

    Can you please post a screenshot? Do you have "colour samples" disabled in the info palette by chance? Press that small triangle in the upper right corner of the palette to check.
