(MUSIC) Hi, I'm Taz Tally and welcome to Photoshop Color Correction: Dark Color Cast. This is a mini-project course where we'll be making color adjustment to a dark image with a significant color cast. In this course, we'll apply image evaluation and color correction into our creative adjustment tools and techniques, we covered in the Photoshop Color Correction Fundamentals course. First, using Histograms, I'll show you how to evaluate the characteristics of a dark color casted color image.
Then we'll discuss how to determine if your image has a color cast and whether or not you want to retain or remove that color cast. Next, using Histograms and a Curves Adjustment Layer, I'll show you how to remove the color cast and improve the overall brightness and contrast of a dark color casted image. Finally, I will demonstrate how to further fine-tune the overall brightness and contrast of this image after you have effected the color cast removal. Now, let's get started with Photoshop Color Correction: Dark Color Cast.
