What a very useful resource! Simple but incredibly effective - I will be examining my photo collection to see how I can make adjustments.

This is a great resource! It's very clear and easy to understand - one that I will certainly use for my classes. I teach basic Photoshop skills courses and really needed a better way to introduce the histogram. Thank you so much for sharing this resource. It's excellent!

A great deal of short workshops by Martin Pherniak, slowly and clearly conducted. I will go to him to improve my learning.

I knew a little about histograms, but this resource gave me a great feel for how to use them.
