Photoshop: Enable Curves other Adjustments for 32bits/channels image

Do you know if CS6 will allow to adjust curves for a 32bits/Chanels image ?

Thanks for the request. We can't comment on future versions of Photoshop at this time. Sorry.

I would expect so, since it is possible in Photoshop CS5.

No sir, with a 32bit/channel image level command is available, not curves.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Photoshop: Curves Adjustment under 32 bit/channel.

I like to see curve (adjustment layer) implemented under 32 bit mode. This would make it possible to make my own tone remaping and enable me to see the image naturally while working on it in this mode.
You would need to adjust the tool for linear float ranges.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled 32 bits/channel limitations.

Why in Photoshop the 32 bits/channel has so many limitations ?

its been years and years why this hasn't been addressed  yet

zzzjpg

like all these important adjustments grayed out this images also blending modes etc

 

while a program like after effects which is also from the adobe family works like charm

I agree. After Effects seems to handle 32bit files a bit better. It also seems to have more options for adjustments such as Curves layers. OCIO transform layers can be added/used in 32bit also, allowing for ACES workflows to be used. I think unbounded ICC profiles may allow this as well, however Photoshop doesn't have the option for OCIO adjustment layers or Color Space Transform layers. 

I know Lars Borg from Adobe was working on something with this. https://groups.google.com/d/msg/ocio-dev/AnmLVkv1Tcg/RgEDd9oIBgAJ

Plus better compatibility with Adobe products was mentioned in the ACES: Retrospective and Enhancements. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/314385826_ACES_-_Retrospective_and_Enhancements_-_2017

I think maybe a workspace/option/configuration could be added for Photoshop that works better for people that work in VFX, 3D, Matte Painting, Compositing, Cinema, etc. Have it work in 32bit bit, add OCIO, bypass/handle color management manually, Logarithmic Gamma working space and tools for working with cinema footage, film scans, etc.  ACES integration. Would love an upgrade to the "Blend if" sliders. Maybe replace it with an HSL qualifier like Davinci Resolve. 

More info about cinema/vfx workflows with OCIO/ACES etc http://cinematiccolor.org/

It’s on our radar. I can’t really say more than that. Cameron, you provided a lot of good information.

Completely understand., thanks so much for all the hard work y'all! It's much appreciated.

I know sometimes these support forums are like echo chambers of complaints/problems/nitpicks. Which i'm sure is frustrating, especially since a lot of times the problems might be completely out of Adobe's control, yet blame still placed. For instance color management system bugs and gpu bugs. Like OS X deciding to glitch out with V4 ICCs, or various OpenGL glitches/bugs. 

I completely empathize with the struggles in this area. Just trying to wrap my head around all the complexities and problems that can arise in color/image processing systems has been hard enough for me. I couldn't imagine having to actually build it or debugging each individual stage that can go wrong. And to the Photoshop teams credit, it's always seemed to display sRGB encoded images perfectly. Much better/more consistent gamma decoding than system viewers or browsers. 

Anyways keep up the awesome work y'all and thanks for the update! I've been using Photoshop everyday for almost 20 years now (since i was 8), I look forward to seeing it grow :)

Cheers
Cameron


Oh.. there is one feature that I'd REALLY LOVE for retouching but it's somewhat tough to explain... 

Essentially make a hybrid tool with the Pen Tool, Puppet Warp, Liquify.  The reason being is often times when using liquify it's to smooth an edge or modify an edge a bit. For instance if you were retouching a backpack or purse and wanted to liquify it to a nice smooth shape, essentially pushing and pulling it or warping to fit into a "smooth" curve. A curve that could be better drawn with the pen tool. What i essentially would love is if you could trace an edge that you'd like to warp with the pen tool, "clamp it" to the image, then adjust the points like puppet warp or the points on the bezier path itself to make a smooth curve edge. This also would be extremely efficient for studios who outsource their clipping. They could send out images to be returned with paths, then use those paths to "path warp" or "path distort", "path liquify" an image. This can also work great for body shaping as well.

Hello, Cameron Rad please post the request from the bottom of your post to a new discussion, I know that many a retoucher would love to have such a tool/ function!
