Photoshop Curves, Levels and Brightness & Contrast
show user profile  zeefusion
Can some one explain why each is different? From what I understand:

Brightness is adjusting between 0 and 255.

Not sure what contrast is exactly.

Levels is adjusting between 0 and 255 but with the added ability to adjust between the mid point of 0 and 255. This is linear.

Curves is the same as levels but non linear which allows for extra adjustment points.

Is the above correct? Can some on explain the main differences :)

You're right, they all adjust the "tonal image" of a picture. Curves let you manipulate colors too, but they all basically do the same thing, with variations
