Levels and Curves

Within Pixelmator and Photoshop, there are often unused tools called levels and curves adjustments. They are not often used because they have a overwhelming exterior interface which looks much too complicated for the average user. However, the levels and curves adjustments are simple, yet powerful toning tools that can take images from looking static, to vibrant and dynamic.
Basically, They both control contrast, but they are much more robust then your typical contrast slider. They allow you to have much more control over your image then a contrast or brightness slider would.
