In other situations, you may be simply interested in modifying the overall color temperature of your photographs. Let's say, for example, you have an image and you don't really know if something is neutral, or for that matter you just want to make a subjective edit to the photograph. Well you can do so by using these Temperature and Tint sliders. Like say, for example, with this portrait here. All that I want to do is I want to warm this image up, so I'm going to click and drag to the right to add some nice warmth there. I can also work on the Tint. Going to the left isn't got to be flattering because it's a portrait of a person.
Going to the right, adding just a touch of that magenta sometimes can help out, and now I'll go ahead and add a little bit more yellow there just to warm this image up. Now this is completely a subjective edit, yet I'm liking the way the image looks. I'll press the P key. Here's my before, press the P key again, and there's after. And the other thing that I want to point out here is that sometimes what you might want to do when working with Temperature and Tint is make your way down to Vibrance and Saturation, and sometimes I find its kind of fun to lower the Saturation a bit, especially if you are going to push the color shift subjectively one particular way. And just a subtle little de-saturation here really helps out because I warm the image up by increasing the Temperature amount, and that made the image nice and warm and yellow also brought in some magenta, yet that was just a little bit too much for this image, so I then went down to Saturation, brought that down just a bit there Now let's take a look at our before and after. Here we have it: the before, and then now the after.
