Same techniques can be used to remove color spill
Just use the adjustment layers and paint a mask for them.
Here is a quick example to improve a shot.

Can anyone explain to me what the curves and levels adjustment layers are doing that could not just be done in the brightness/contrast adjustment layer? I cant work out why they are needed :(

I guess each has itís own advantages.
Some changes are easier to control in curve, some are easier with Level.
The differences are tiny but effective.

Brad pretty much said it.

For me, I've taken out the brightness and contrast controls out my top menu, and I try my best to always use Curves. When I can't use curves (curves can be hard to understand), I'll use levels.

Brightness + Contrast = Axe
Levels = Knife
Curves = Scalpel

Keep in mind that non-destructive layer editing can be fine and dandy but for some things it's quicker and will save file size if you just press Cmd + M or Cmd + L.

Thanks guys, that was very quick and informative. Im not really very good with curves at the moment, so im trying to get better with it. I use levels a lot though, so i can still get some of the accuracy i guess.

Appreciate the help, thank you!

Nick
