Adobe Camera Raw: White Balance Tool

Sometimes we just don’t have the time to custom white balance our cameras or we accidentally set the camera on a wrong preset.  For example, you had your camera setting on Fluorescent and it should have been set on Daylight.  When that happens your images will have the wrong temperature / wrong color giving it a color cast.  Check out this kelvin link to help you understand the technical side of color and temperature.  To fix this problem you can use Adobe Camera Raw’s White balancing tool and or Adobe Lightroom color temp picker.

In this video, you’ll learn about Photoshop Adobe Camera Raw’s White Balance Tool.  Some of the main points in this video are:

  • Correcting Color Cast
  • RGB info
