No, no, that's way too basic an answer, all but the most novice of us know how
to use Gamma, but brightness had a more pronounced effect on shadows than gamma
does without the side effect of over brighting the top half of the image range.
Also playing with Gamma + drops saturation which makes it necessary to pull
drastic curves in Photoshop, the brightness allowed a bit of better finese.
So I often have white point at .001 and black point at .1 with maximum as my
crop, there is VERY little room at the top side of the data for it to get
Saturation is always tough in vuescan.
