Post Color Cast by Numbers

A quick and easy way to fix color casting without any guesswork. Written for Photoshop CS3 Beta, but applicable to CS2 and possibly previous versions as well

A good tip. Thanks!

You might want to point out this only affects how the eyedroppers work, so if they don't use the eyedroppers they won't notice a difference.

Re: Better printing for all

Ok, I meant to put that as part of the tutorial that I have changed it to.. sorry about that.

It goes better when you see everything together obviously.. I had separated it because it's applicable other places too, but it makes more sense combined.

This tutorial I think people will find much more useful.

I have changed the original topic and description to accurately reflect the tutorial.

Is there any way a moderator can change the subject line that appears on the forum?

In the tutorial, you are finding an area that is 50% gray in the image. In an image with a color cast, any gray area (gray in the subject) will also have that color cast. That is what you should be looking for and needs correcting.

Re: Better printing for all

I've never had a problem with it, perhaps give it a try and see how it works for you. I've shown this same method to many photographers and many others who work with digital imaging and I've not had any complaints so I thought I'd share.

Perhaps I can find an image with a more severe color cast to demonstrate this with.

I'd love to see what kind of results people get with this method.
