Okay, Thanks to all.
Found LAB, and did the delete A&B to get the Light Channel,
Q. Since the original image was a Color / Infrared shot (digital)
would the best was to get all the detail of Gray/IR is using Decompose?
After applying auto levels, you have gray scale.
My understanding is that going to Gray scale by itself, you lose 16bit to 8bit.
So, Decompose would be better?
Q. Next after having the L Layer, what is the best way off adjusting
Shadows and Lights and Mid tones? So that be done before Decompose?
Thanks in Advance
