    This is one of the most valuables articles I have found on this website (and there are numerous others)!
    I find setting target colors especially useful. I have had a lot of trouble getting the colors I want, and this is really helping.

    I’ve been using Levels for a while now but this article will definitely help me fine tune its usage. Thanks!

    Fantastic article, easy to follow but not “dumbed down”. I’m off to practise my levels!

    What an excellent article. Explains everything simply, but thoroughly. Great not only for beginners, but a great review for anyone experienced with Elements. I own several Elements books, and none offer this level of explanation or completeness. This is a keeper.
