I'm relatively new to GIMP and Ubuntu.  I am moving away from using photoshop/windows.  I'm a life long

With learning the structure of GIMP, I'm of course wanting to recreate my work flow.

The one feature of photoshop I have come to rely on heavily is the Shadows/Highlights function.  It is 
extremely important to me.
With it I can adjust and preserve the detail in shadow and highlight areas of an image to approximate what 
I actually saw.
But, I can't seem to find something similar in Gimp.  Can someone point me to the area of Gimp that may 
provide this?

Thanks in advance !!!! 

Hey Julie,

The Shadow Recovery script-fu plugin may be helpful:

You will most likely find yourself looking for tools in the GIMP that
aren't there, because it evolved separately from Photoshop and the
workflow for most tasks is just plain different.  That has been my
experience from the other side, as a long time GIMP users experimenting
with Photoshop.

The GIMP will get the job done, once you get used to it.  Initially you
will be reading a lot of tutorials and watching a lot of videos.
Reading through the online (or local) manual and taking notes where and
as "aha!" moments arrive would also be helpful.

You already found out where to ask questions when you get stuck.
