Match color of subject to background using curves

Recommended Posts

Hi there

I want to match the color of a subjet to background using curves adjustment layer. I wanna know if it is possible to sample three pixels (darkness pixel, midd tone pixel and lightess pixel) and apply those exactly values to subject layer so I can fix the colors, but using curves adjustment layer

I'm not aware of a way to do this.  We do have a Picker on the Curves adjustment, so you might be able to make that work in this case.  The Picker allows you to drag on the image to modify the adjustment. The initial click will place a node on the curve in relation to the pixel selected. Dragging up will lighten the image while dragging down will darken it. The curve graph will update accordingly.  So if you might be able to use that to do this manually.
