  • color balance to a specific color,can i do it?


    i have a question about color balance

    i can emulate the color balance , and balance to a specific color

    i thought about a solid color but i can't get the same effect

    in color balance there are 3 sliders , and shadow ,midtones, and hightlight

    i would use a specific color and emulate the same effect of color balance

    can i do it?

    Hi Mantra: I don't much about "emulate" some color effect with color balance, but there's a tool in Ps (Match Color) not frequently used by many, that in some cases can do a fair job. It is not as good as using adjustment layers, but it is an alternate method for this purpose. Take a look here:

      Probably using adequate luminance masking but I'd rather stick with the color balance tool if I was you since there is no point to emulate something simple with something much more complicated.

        Sometimes I come across a color in a magazine, poster, wall, paint, etc that I like. To use it or know what it is I either take a picture or scan it. Is there an inexpensive device that can take a visual sample of the color and provide the color code?

        Rihanna's Color Treatment!
        by davidlicious
        I was curious as to how everyone applies color treatments to their images, especially one that's a creamy pastel pink/purple and one that's a darker golden green/brown.

        Maybe something like one of these shots of Rihanna.

        I'm sure the options are endless but wanted to see...

        Please don't call it color grading
        by Doug Nelson
        My most common unfulfilled topic request for potential RetouchPRO LIVE shows is for "color grading". I reply to those requests by asking for a definition. And rarely hear back. When I did hear back it was with a link to an example rather than an actual definition.
