When it comes to Color Correction, the place that you want to begin is Camera Raw, because Camera Raw allows you to apply these adjustments in a way that's nondestructive. It's also incredibly easy. All that we need to do here to color correct this photograph of a parachute is we need to press the I key. That will then select the White Balance tool, which you can see here. Next, we want to hover over our image, and as we do that, we're going to look for something that we think should be neutral. This might be something that's white, gray or black.
Well here, I'll go ahead and click on the parachute. When I do that all of a sudden all of that kind of dingy yellow color, well it's removed. You can press the P key to look at your before and then press it again to look at the after. In this photograph, well it looks just much better. And after you've color corrected your image, you may need to modify your Temperature and Tint sliders a little bit. So here, you could go ahead and click and drag those perhaps one way of making it more cool or more warm. When you click on something, you don't always get it just perfect.
Like with this image, I think it looks a little bit better with this one cooled off a bit. Well then after having color corrected this photograph, we'd simply need to click on Open in order to open this image up and to continue working on it in Photoshop.
