"This keeps the amounts transferred visible only to participants in the transaction (and those they designate)" -- ElementsProject.org

I would like to get more info about this, how do you designate someone to be able to see the amount of a transaction? pretty sure private key won't be involved. Also, what more advantages CT gives us, excluding the anonymity.
