If you think my colour was way off, you need to check your monitor after the colour shift you have produced.

Re: How to remove annoying magenta cast

First of all is your monitor calibrated?
I think you are still suffering from a magenta cast there.
Make an adj curve layer and make very small moves from the middle of the
curves. Start with the green one, that should get rid of most, then balance with the red and blue.

If the pic is a bit bigger maybe we can correct it better way.

Re: How to remove annoying magenta cast

What I don't much understand is why there is so much guesswork going on. If in any doubt at all you could correct by the numbers, but otherwise..... I'm more of the mind of Flashtones in saying that finding the neutral will sort most of your cast out.

Re: How to remove annoying magenta cast

lots of variations here. Makes me think the color settings for the monitors are in need of adjustment. Tareq's seem to be the most accurate to me - I just calibrated a week ago.

Like Mike said, if in doubt go by the numbers. Everybody's eyes play tricks on them once in a while.
