Maximize Value

  • Where to find it:

    • Add Adjustment Layer / Extension Pack / Color Correction / 

    • NodeGraph / Right Mouse Click / Nodes / Filter / Extension Pack / Color Correction / 

Maximize Value will offset the RGB Colors until one of them reaches a value of 1.0.

This is mostly useful for the creation of Specular Color Maps for Metallic Surfaces where

you don't want to take out Specular Intensity (in order to remain Energy Conserving) while

at the same time giving tinted specular highlights.
