I Love Lightroom's Parametric Tone Curve!

Its so easy to create a smooth curve of any general shape I want, that I use it for 95% of my photos (*if* I do adjust the tone curve), only resorting to the point curve for the most unusual cases.

I was one of those clamoring for the infinite adjustability of the point curve, but now I only use it occasionally. Once one masters the balance between the basic tonal adjustments, usually a slight-to-moderate (and smooth) re-shaping of the tone curve is all that is called for...

(don't get me wrong - the point curve rocks too, I just don't use it as much)

Thanks Adobe, for another job well done!

Agreed! It is great. Can't help thinking it would be nice to have full RGB control though for "special occasions". =)
