Remove color casts selectively

Before After

Color casts can sometimes occur only in a portion of an image. This can be caused by a mixture of light sources with different color temperatures or by brightly colored objects just outside the framed scene that reflect light into the scene. This lesson covers how to selectively reduce color casts using control points.


First, a control point is added to the bride's veil by clicking on the Add Control Point button and then placing a control point on the veil.

Next, the enhancement sliders were used to correct the color cast. Since the veil is a neutral object, reducing the Saturation slider was enough to reduce the color cast.

If the object with a color cast is not supposed to be neutral, the Red, Green, and Blue sliders can be used while also providing more precision over the reduction of the color cast.
