White Balance for JPEG's

I recently "finished"?? a filter to fix White Balance problems of jpeg files. It operates with no controls (no need to search for a grey point or anything else) and I think it does a very good job (IMHO). I need help to test it (alpha test). If you have pics with wrong White Balance and you are willing to help please post them here to fix.

Thanks in advance


P.S. Is it a good idea for a filter? (one step color correction with no skills)? Cause I'm planning to sell it... (not to all that will help of course)

I almost forgot...

Send me an e-mail (manta1900(a)gmail.com) if you want to be a beta tester (getting an altered version).

Bolt...

Manta,

Here's one that is 'supposed to be' silver colored, but it came out blue.
It's not a shot I did, but a friend makes these bolts, and he took this shot, and wondered if I could make it look better, and I like the idea of a quick fix in helping others like him.
(I don't know how to attach images, so I put it on my site)

Good results Manta If your filter can acheive simple, consistent and accurate results like this I reckon it would be a great time saver for batch jobs also. Are you just focusing on jpegs or will this algorithm work with other image formats?
