horiz. curve to lighten/darken  use picker on curve


This macro sets up a horizontal curve with blend mode set to soft light.  The horizontal curve cannot see 50% gray when set to soft light which is what a horizontal curve gives.  Then the macro sets an HSL adjustment and sets the saturation to zero.  This adjustment is then set as a child layer of the curves adjustment.  When this happens, then you can see the original picture again.  The macro selects the curves adjustment. The user then uses the picker in the curves adjustment and selects areas in the picture to darken or lighten directly in the curves adjustment layer.
