Text currently says: If you head on over to the Missing Manual Web site (www.missingmanuals.com) you can find links to every piece of software mentioned in this book, as well as downloadable images for the tutorials, if you want to practice without using your own photos. (Or maybe you never take pictures that need correcting?) A word about the image files for the tutorials: to make life easier for folks with dial-up Internet connections, the file sizes have been kept pretty small. This means you probably won't want to print the results of what you create (since you'll end up with a print about the size of a match book). But that doesn't really matter since the files are really meant for onscreen use. At the Web site, you can also find articles, tips, and updates to the book. If you click the Errata link, you'll see any corrections to the book's content, too. If you find something, feel free to report it by using this link. Each time the book is printed, we'll update it with any confirmed corrections. If you want to be certain that your own copy is up to the minute, this is where to check for any changes. And thanks for reporting any errors or corrections.

Step 1

On the Mac, at least, there are separate Layer menu picks for "New Fill Layer" and "New Adjustment Layer", so the example here should be Layers -> New Adjustment Layer -> Levels.
