  • Quick color cast correction

    Digital cameras have indoor and outdoor settings. The white balance in particular may cause problems. In this case a flower was shot outdoors with the white balance set for indoors. Using Photoshop you can correct this with curves. [details]

    Short, to the point, and an excellent technique, thanks.

    I'll just add that you can doubleclick on the eyedropper to fine tune what it calls "white" (but that's another tutorial for another day).

        Dirty White Seamless
        by Lorlee
        Well the seamless was not actually dirty but boy it caught lots of color casts! I took this picture outside and the sun was behind me so I had to use my black fleece to keep the sun from shining through the seamless. Now I do not have a clean seamless.
