I've never tried but everyone always mentions it. Haha.

The extent I've used it is for iChat and changing the background in videos. Works well with that.

Thought I'd touch up on it again - still too much clipping on the black?

Can someone explain what "clipping" mean?

Clipping is in reference to the histogram of the photo. If there is "data", then there is a vertical graph value. The right side of the histogram = highlights, left side = dark/blacks. When you alter the curves of the image, you can intentionally clip away the highlights and darks as you see fit. If you clip away any part of the chart that has a vertical point/value, then you've clipped away captured data.

Thanks, so can you tell by looking at a photo if it has been "clipped" or do you need to see the histogram?

When someone tells me that, you usually think of it as loss to no detail in the Blacks or highlights, depending on if the shadows or highlights are clipped, respectively.

Don't try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.

I was looking through older photos I took when I had my T3, shooting jpeg, and before LR4. I decided to try and re-edit one of the ones that caught my attention.

Let me know what you all think.

Which works best?

OK to make it easy to see what we are talking about, look at the straps on the boots. Top image you can see them, the bottom you can just see the buckle and the excess strap.

Your monitor must be better than mine as the straps look nearly identical to me. I see a difference in the pattern of the scarf and the background like the light pole though.
