Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Making quick edits to color, part of Up and Running with Photoshop Elements 12.
Here in the quick edit workspace in the…editor you can control various properties of color, the…overall balance of colors, the intensity or saturation…of color and even color hue in your photographs.…Here I have a photo that I think has an over all warm or gold color cast.…I remember that the face of that dial was light grey…maybe even white, certainly not light orange as it appears here.…So to try to minimize that color cast, I'm going to go to…the Balance controls in the Adjustments panel in the Quick Edit workspace.…I'll click Balance to open the Balance panel.…
Here I have two tabs. The Temperature tab and the Tint tab.…I'll start with Temperature, which ranges from cool blues.…On the left side of the slider, to warm golds on the right side.…And if I want to get back to the original…color, I'll click the thumbnail with the white curved arrow.…Now there is no right or wrong color balance.…It's really something subjective.…So, I'm just going to hover over the various thumbnails here,…until I find a color balance that I think is pleasing.…
