How to Correct the Color of a Photo: Page 2

Color Correction = Color Temperature  If you've taken photographs under a variety of lighting conditions, you've noticed how the results show a distinct color cast depending on the light source. Light's color temperature is what professional photographers and photo editors use to measure and modify different colors in a photo to achieve a desired color effect. When the color temperature is high, more blue light exists. When the color temperature is low, there is more red. In the following four examples, see how Warren corrected each photo's color by setting appropriate color temperatures.



First Color Correction  Move your cursor on then off this image to see how the undersaturated, higher-temperature blues and greens of this abandoned barn image can be warmed and enlivened.




Second Color Correction  Move your cursor on then off this image to see how the weak blues, greens, and yellows of this Asian wooden bridge image can be emphasized.




Third Color Correction  Move your cursor on then off this image to see how the dim green and yellow tones of this wrecked-boats image, shot on a cloudy day, can be recolored with warmer temperatures.




Fourth Color Correction  Move your cursor on then off this image to see how Warren diminished the strong red and yellow tones of this image of three young shepherds, recovering the true colors of its midtones, highlights, and shadows.
