Re: removing color cast/One step correction

Well I used a curves adjustment layer and using the middle eyedropper clicked on the umbrella in the background that I figured was white.

Re: removing color cast

Thanks for the info and the great work. I just got back to this photo...I have been busy playing with my new toy. I finally bought a DSLR I am gonna keep working on the photo though, it seems like a pretty tough one so its good for learning.

Re: removing color cast

johnm160,

you've still got a bit of red cast in there. try 'color balance', 'channel mixer' or maybe a hue/sat adjustment layer and reduce the red overall. definitely lookin better

Re: removing color cast

Kraellin,

The only one I was able to work for me was Color Balance, I pulled out a bunch of red, I wanted to go further but the picture started to look cold or flat if I took out more.

Re: removing color cast

ok, that got a lot of the red out. maybe we shld call color balance the visine tool

you can also mask areas of the image and selectively alter them.

Re: removing color cast

LOL maybe I should have just poured visine on the photo, sure would have been quicker. I will try masking on the next photo, that should help also.

Re: removing color cast

it's a good one.

I took a rather conservative approach...

Re: removing color cast

Used a three levels method.

1. created a levels layer and set white (sidewalk) and black (shadows in trees) points.

2. examined layers (red was in bad shape). Created another levels layer and corrected the red channel only.

3. created another levels layer and adjusted mid-tones.

(I used three levels layers in order to keep my corrections separated and allow me to go back and adjust as needed.)

4. merge layers apply a bit of unsharp mask.

5. a little image repair (clone stamp, etc.).
