Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Shifting color with Levels, part of Quick Fixes with Photoshop Elements 10.
When the color in an image doesn't look accurate or it's shifted in one direction …or another toward a different color, making the overall color appearance inaccurate. …Your first thought might be to go to the Enhance menu, and either try an Auto …Color correction, or to look at the Adjust Color menu. …For example, the Color Variations command found on the Adjust Color menu. …Allows you to click through various Thumbnails to try to find the more …accurate color for an image. However, in most cases I think it's a lot …faster to work with a control that you might never expect to be used, for …adjusting the color in the image. I'll go ahead and click Cancel in the …Color Variations dialog, and then I'm going to choose Enhance > Adjust Lighting …and Levels. If you're already familiar with Levels, …you'll know that it's a great tool for adjusting overall brightness and contrast …in an image. What you might not have realized, is that …levels can also be used to apply a very quick color correction to an image.…
