Color cast repair (Eismann retouch book)


  • Color cast repair (Eismann retouch book)

    Holy moly! DH is red/green color blind and didn't notice that his white balance was all the way to one side in the green picture on the left. I fixed this with levels, curves and apply image (on channels). This is some powerful stuff.

    How to correct this incredible color cast
    by bestremera
    This is a Photomatix exposure fusion (not HDR) composite of 3 exposures. I know I was going to get a crazy color cast so I put that white card on the floor hoping that clicking on it with levels/curves white dropper would fix the color. It didn't.
