1) Open up an image.
2) Insert a point sample on the image (say 3x3) point sample
3) Add an adjustment curve and move the RGB curve so that the image lightens and darkens. You should see the first set of numbers in the info palette showing you the original and the second set showing you the revised values. So far, so good.
4) With your image adjusted (make it a big adjustment), open up your "Blend If" sliders on your curves adjustment layer. When you do this, do you notice that your first and second set of numbers on the info palette have reversed positions?
5) Now move the Blend If sliders so that your image is affected. Do you notice that the values in the info palette remain frozen?
I *believe* if you use CS3, then a) the numbers don't reverse as shown in Step 4; and b) the values do change when you move your blend if sliders around.
I am curious what others experience.

Jerry, I meant to write, "Using the color sampler tool, insert a color sample point, using a 3x3 pixel point sample."
In Step 3, add a grossly exaggerated "Crontrast S Curve." That is, one that lightens the lights and darkens the darks.
In Step 4 and using CS 4, the initial set of color sample values move to the new values location, and the new values move to the initial values location.
Step 5, I am wanting to know if when you move/adjust the "Blend If" sliders, do the RGB values from the point sample change. They should, but on CS4, they are frozen in place.
Please let me know if this explanation is understandable.
