Since this photo was taken on an overcast day, the overall temperature of the image is cooler. In order to adjust the color, let’s first convert the layer to a Smart Object. Then, run the Camera Raw filter on the image. In order to warm the image up a bit, we’ll increase the temperature a little, and decrease the tint, shadows and white areas. Since this is being applied to a smart object, we’ll be able to go back make further adjustments later on.

- [Voiceover] Now before I save this graphic out,…I do wanna make a color adjustment.…Since this particular image was taken…when it was an overcast day, there was no direct sunlight,…this resulted in an image…that didn't have any color variation…when we ran the offset filter.…So that was a nice advantage, however,…it did make the image much cooler.…So I want the image to be a lot warmer.…So what I'll do in the Layers panel,…is I'll come up here and select the Merge Layers.…I'm gonna right-click on this, and come down…and convert this to a smart object.…
Then with the smart object selected,…let's come up to the Filter menu,…and let's come down and choose Camera Raw Filter.…So inside of this filter, the first thing I'll do…is turn on split screen view,…so I can see the before and after.…Now on the right hand side,…I'm just gonna make some adjustments to these settings,…first we'll start with temperature.…I'm going to increase the temperature to plus eight.…And I'll zoom up here so I can see what this looks like.…
