Overly Dark Pics With Yellow Hue

Greetings! I am seeking some advice on how to remove the yellowish hue on the attached photo whilst also brightening the pic. This photo was taken from a wedding album where almost 75% of the pics have similar defects. The walls of the church is white. Any input would be most appreciated.

Re: Overly Dark Pics With Yellow Hue

NuffRespec, there are about a dozen ways to correct the yellow cast. If you have Photoshop or Photoshop Elements you can open the image in Camera RAW and use the White Balance tool to touch a spot that should be neutral (White or Gray). This will fix most if not all images in about 2 seconds.

You can also use the Temperature sliders in Camera RAW to adjust the white balance.

Regards, Murray

Re: Overly Dark Pics With Yellow Hue

One thing to note: Your background (wall) is lit by tungsten lighting, which is warm, but your foreground (pews) is lit by flash, which is cool. When you correct for one you lose the other. The solutions might be more trouble than they are worth, so a compromise situation where the foreground is a little cool while the background is a little warm might be your best bet. Warm, especially for a church wedding, is somewhat romantic anyway.

Welcome to RetouchPRO Hope you enjoy your stay here and make lots of friends. Poke around, ask questions, offer help, have fun!

If you use Photoshop you can post a fairly large pictures which are under 100k using the save for web function in Photoshop as described here:
Size, Quality and/or Format your Attached Images.. (Click here)

If you want to post a larger resolution that is over 100K then you can host your image elsewhere and attach a link in the thread, but also please attach an under 100K version (so the thread remains useful in the future, regardless of external links).
Other Hosts if you do not have your own site:
ImageVenue.com (3Meg max, free) pixentral.com (2Meg max, free) photobucket.com (1 Meg max free, 5 Meg PRO) mediafire.com (100 Meg per file, free) post a link in the thread to the site that is hosting the larger image.

Remember to attach an under 100K version in the thread so the thread remains useful in the future, regardless of external links.

You can also use these Free sites: (YouSendIt.com); (Podmailing.com);(Pando.com); (Sendspace.com) to send your original to your own email address, then open that email message, copy the link, and post that link in the thread.

I did a levels adjustment then what Steve said about the yellow on this itty-bitty sample

Thanks all for your input. In reference to the image size, I must have misinterpreted the instructions. PSCS (Image Size) showed the Pixel Dimensions as 99.8k at a resolution of 72. I will re-read the attachment procedures for future postings. Thanks again!!
