Removing Colour Cast in Photoshop

Removing Colour Cast in Photoshop

One of the most important and the most difficult task in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements editing is removing the colour cast.

How can you see the Colour Cast?

Colour cast is very difficult to see. You need to have the experience for recognizing the colours and then find out what colour or tonality you need to work on to remove the colour cast. In our Colour in Photoshop class you will learn how to identify the colour cast and and you will learn how to use the tools that you have in your editing software.

Here is a little tutorial that shows you how important colour is in your digital photography.

1- Open an image in Photoshop

[singlepic id=336 w=320 h=240 float=none]

2-First thing first, Create or duplicate the layer

[singlepic id=337 w=320 h=240 float=none]

3- Go to Image>Adjustments>Levels

[singlepic id=338 w=320 h=240 float=none]

4- As you can see in this image it needs a little adjustment on Bright point

[singlepic id=339 w=320 h=240 float=none]

5- By adjusting the Bright point you will see the difference

[singlepic id=340 w=320 h=240 float=none]

6- For next step go to Image> adjustment> Color Balance

[singlepic id=341 w=320 h=240 float=none]

7- You have three colour sliders at the top and Three radio buttons at the bottom

[singlepic id=342 w=320 h=240 float=none]

8- In this image I know that the Mid Tone needs to be adjusted, so I selected the Mid Tone In Radio Button. I started to adjust the colours in Mid Tones by moving the sliders

[singlepic id=343 w=320 h=240 float=none]

9- Now you can see the difference it makes in to your photos when you remove the Colour Cast properly by turning on and off the top layer

[singlepic id=344 w=320 h=240 float=none]

[singlepic id=345 w=320 h=240 float=none]

And job is done! Here is the Before

[singlepic id=346 w=320 h=240 float=none]

And here is the After

[singlepic id=347 w=320 h=240 float=none]

What a big difference!
