Colour Cast Correction in Photoshop

23-Oct-14: Colour Cast Correction in Photoshop

Before & AfterHow often have you been frustrated by colours appearing in your images that weren’t there when you took the photograph, or your image appears washed out and lacking any interest. Surprisingly this can happen relatively often depending on the light you are shooting in, the white balance you used when taking the photo and many other reasons. In the past we may have disregarded these images and definitely in the film days these would have been throw away images. But, now with the power of the software of companies such Adobe we can take control of our images and correct these colour casts.

Forget all of those frustrations and use this simple method to fix the issue. This video tutorial shows you how to correct a colour cast issue using either levels or curves adjustment layers in Photoshop. There are many ways that it can be done such as finding your white, black and grey points in the image or using calculations. It is important that you learn as many ways to achieve similar results in order to better understand the power of Photoshop and when one method doesn’t give you the results you are after you know the alternatives. I have personally found the method in the video below the most reliable and gives me the result I am after on most occasions.
