  • Adding Colour

    Hey Guys

    New to the forum and would like to know if there is a solution for this. I am a real estate photographer and often have colour cast problems. For example i may shoot a room that had tungsten down lights which then leave a warm tungsten light on the white walls. Some of my clients dont want colour cast present in there images.

    Currently i am deep etching the area then using the colour brush to brush out the colour cast.

    The Question is, is there anyway i can eye drop a colour say on a wall, and then simply brush it in without having to do any heavy selections?

    For example, i know if you use darken brush on a lighter area it will brush over as is recognises its lighter. Can the same be done for colour where it will just recognise a similar colour and only add to that?

    Hopefully you are shooting can selectively brush in color correction with the adjustment brush or you could make a duplicate and correct for the color cast in one version and layer it with the other and mask in the corrected tungsten area.

      Hey Wolfman

      Thanks for the reply and both those techniques would work, But i would still have to brush these areas in and stay within the lines. Im looking for a simpler method in which it detects the colour im brushing in and only add colours to that similar colour.

        I do it the old fashioned way - filtration.

          Do you have sample? there are too many ways to fix it but it depends on the type of cast, location, intensity etc, etc.
          If you have sample to post, please, make sure it is big enough.

            use selective color or hue/saturation. just select the color cast on its color

              Colour dialogue box has changed
              by Canna W
              I use CS4.

              I have obviously done something to change the colour layout in my colour dialogue box, and would like to change it back. It currently looks like the attached screen grab.

              It used to be just one colour, ranging from pure white in the top left hand corner,...

              Creating a spot colour
              by stedders
              Apologies if this is a bit basic, but I am new to this sort of thing.

              I need to create a spot colour – PMS 233C – for the image attached. Not the brush – but the base of the object.

              Can anyone give a quick 1-2-3 step guide....

              Hey All,

              So I'm a photographer but have been retouching a lot of my own work for a number of years now. I've read a lot, watched a lot of online videos and spent hours trying out techniques that I stumbled across on this forum and others. I feel as though I have a fairly good and well...

              Hi guys. Could you please give me some advice on how to change the colour of this red flannel to a beige (or any other colour) colour. Thanks in advance.

              Changing the colour of a top
              by CarlRetoucher

              Could some one give me some advice on how to match this yellow swatch on this top. I've tried with selective colour and can't get anywhere near it, I'm having trouble with the mid tones and shadows.
