Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting white balance, part of Photoshop Elements 11 Essentials: 02 Editing and Retouching Photos .
The color in an image is determined by the color temperature in which a scene is shot.…Most cameras have white balance controls.…The purpose of those controls is to try to neutralize any color cast as a photo…is being taken. But sometimes the White Balance controls are set improperly for…the scene, or if your camera is set to Auto White Balance, sometimes it can be…fooled if you're shooting in a mixed lighting situation.…It doesn't matter, if you're shooting a raw file, how you set your white balance…controls in the camera, because you can start from scratch with white balance…here in the Camera Raw workspace if you're working on a Raw file.…
If you're working on a JPEG, you don't have as much editing latitude insofar…as white balance goes, because your camera's White Balance settings have been…baked into the JPEG by your camera's processing.…So here I do have a Raw image and I'm going to try to fix the color cast that I see here.…I'd like the sheets in this image to be more neutral, as they actually were in the scene.…
