    Histogram Question...

    In all the Canon software that I installed on my computer when I got the 30D or my there a way to view a histogram like that one my camera shows on the LCD? Or is there one in PS that I don't know about?



    Just remembered PS has a histogram in under LEVELs. Now to find it in the canon software....

    Another way to view the histogram in PS is to go to Window>Histogram. You can't make adjustments directly to it like you can in the levels window, but you can leave it up so you can see how other changes you make affect it.

    In the Zoombrowser there is a Brightness histogram in the information bar. You may have to click on the chevrons to open it up.
