    Hi All-

    I was supplied a file in CS3 with a photo. I do not have the original photo. The photo is dark and in PS I would use brightness/contrast and curves. Is there a brightness contrast feature in CS3. i have not found it yet? Is there anything similar? Thoughts on how to achieve this?

    Thanks,

    the best way to manage color in photos is Photoshop, so, select that photo in Ai, I supose it is embedded, copy, go to photoshop and chose file New, acept the values and paste.

    Make all your adjustments and save the file, then relink the photo in Ai.

    There is a plug in that can save you quite a lot of back and forth work call Phantasm which will give you curves and such directly in Illustrator. It is very good but not a replace for Photoshop but for doing what you want it is a very good tool. A little pricey but if you use photos a lot in Illustrator probably worth it.
