    Confused with Input/Output Points from Info Panel and Curves while matching color?

    MediaBound

      I'm trying to match a sampled color from one layer to another using the Info panel and Curves.

       

      1. I tried going to the R,G,B channels and dragging from the midtone value of 128 for each channel until it matched the corresponding R,G,B values from the sampled layer.

       

      2. I also tried taking the finger tool from the Curves panel and using this to drag in my image either up or down next to the sample point to match the R,G,B values from the sampled layer.

       

      3. I also tried placing a point on the midtone value of 128 for each channel and I manually entered the corresponding R,G,B values from the sampled layer's info R,G,B values. This changes the output value in the Curvels panel, though it does not change the output value in the Info panel?

       

      None of these approaches came close in matching color. What is the right way of doing what I am trying to do?

       

      Thanks in advance.
