Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Correcting white balance of JPEG images, part of Photography Foundations: Night and Low Light.
If you were shooting JPEG images, you'll still need to correct your white balance…most likely, if you've been shooting in low light, unless you were able to get an…accurate white balance while you were shooting.…Unfortunately, you don't have as much latitude for white balance correction…when you're working with a JPEG file, but in Photoshop, correcting white…balance in a JPEG image is much easier than it used to be, because you can now…actually do that in Camera Raw.…Now that may sound little strange, but take a look at this.…I have a JPEG of one of these images here in Bridge, and you can see that the…white balance is definitely off. It's way too red.…
If I go up to the File menu in Bridge, there's an option to Open in Camera Raw--…or I can hit Command+R or Ctrl+R--and when I do that, this JPEG images is…actually opened in the Camera Raw dialog box just as if there was a RAW file.…However, some of these sliders don't work the same way as they would if I was…working with a RAW file.…For example, I have no highlight recovery, but I can use the white balance controls.…
Ben also shows how to obtain accurate color balance in tungsten and fluorescent lighting situations, and how to postprocess the images in Photoshop to remove noise caused by higher ISO settings. He also demonstrates accessories that can greatly expand your low-light photography options.
