Find the next-whitest thing, and make appropriate
allowances. When you set white/black points with the
droppers, you can make the RGB value anything you want to.
This is not a huge problem in practice. I can almost
always find a decent black point and white point in
every image. This is actually a notion that predates
digital imaging by many decades.
