Another Windows plugin. Not to worry.

My take on it,
removed colour cast with pro contrast then remove cast filter in "NIK" on yellow, desaturated the yellows again in selective colour and hue/sat...then brought back the vibrance in the colours of the t-shirts etc, Gary

Ps... if you take images in Raw you can change the white balance easily

Thanks Gary, Pro contrast is a Windows plugin isn't it? You guys have an easy ride
I ended up creating a Luminosity layer from the RAW that brought out more details in the shadows.

Hi Smoothfluid,
"pro contrast" used in combination with "remove colour cast filter" are Nik filter plugins , they work as a good starting point and should be available for mac too

Re: Yellow children (skintone balance issue)

I probably took the long way around but my basic theory of recovery was to start with one thing then compensate with another until right.

See screen shoot for more details.

Nik is available for Mac, just checked the site, also they have a new plugin called "viveza" which looks very interesting to use without the need for layers and is compatible with NX2 for those who use it, i tend to go for lightroom and presets etc...

Another note, having an A3 graphics tablet makes kife so much easier now i found the software to make it run, has been dormant for a while...

Wrong, PhotoResampling is Windows, but it is'nt a plugin.

Re: Yellow children (skintone balance issue)

For children, Caucasian skin is usually equal magenta and yellow, cyan is 1/3 of the magenta percentage (minimal to 0 black): c11 m33 y33 k0 (would be a reasonable example).

For Caucasian adult it is usually a couple of points higher in the yellow: c11 m33 y35 k0 (for example).

The problem you have with this image is that there is a yellow cast in the midtones and highlights but a blue (maybe Cyan cast in the shadows). The trick is to use the luminosity of the image as a mask for a Yellow killing adjustment layer. Then another adjustment layer with an inverted luminosity mask to neutralize the shadows.

In my example, I also blended the Magenta channel from CMYK separation into the final RGB. I have only just finished reading "Professional Photoshop" so am still getting my head around new techniques but I think the attached is a pretty good result...
