Tip 4 - creating blocks from blank
You can use weights (xaos) to create blocks or groups of elements, to move around several parts of the tile a

Mostly curves <3
Lets take a closer look at curves:
WHAT do the CURVES DO?
Curves basically re-map the brightness values: for example, make bright pixels brighter or darker by just adjusting the curve.
The horizontal axis is the original brightness (before editing), while the vertical is the new brightness. The tones are distributed as follows: dark tones closer to the origin, and light tones far from the origin.
The image above shows the curves before any changes. See that before and after values are equal, since no changes were made yet.
Basically, if you drag a node up, lets say, it will make the corresponding tones brighter. For example, dragging up the top node (light tones) will make highlights brighter, and dragging down the bottom node (dark tones) will darken the dark areas. On t

Disclaimer: the images below are not models of perfect curves, but just rough examples of some settings i find helpful.
Also, those are not any close to all possible magic things you can do with curves. Explore ^^
Add contrast to a light Image
Lets say you have a light image with few contrast.
Moving down the dark tones and maybe midtones nodes of the Overall curve will add contrast to it:
Make a dark image brighter
We may also want to do it the other way around: make a very dark image a bit brighter.
Had to go a bit crazy to lighten this up:
