The original tutorial that I was following at
had the user add a temporary 50% Gray Layer (7f7f7f), Mode: Difference
to find a gray point. I manually picked the point, wrote it down on a
piece of paper, and then relocated that point in the Levels Dialog. I
had asked the question, is there another way to remember this x/y
location. This is where the Sample Points Dialog was suggested to
record the location, I think, rather than writing it down on a piece
of paper. It's a nice idea and Dialog.

"Choosing a larger sample radius often helps to get better results."
Argh! I was going to ask where do you change the "radius", but I
simply forgot to look at the Levels Options on the Tool Options
Got it! :-)
