Video duration: 0s 16m 20s Beginner


When you're shooting in complex color scenarios, having a grayscale target or color-checker in the scene will help you immensely when it comes time for color correction. In this mini project course, author Taz Tally shows you how to adjust the color of a complexly color-casted image, using a 10-step grayscale target and Adobe Photoshop. Learn how to evaluate the image, identify the tools you need to correct it, and use histograms, Curves, and a precise selection to make target-based corrections that remove the color cast while improving overall brightness and contrast. Check out the first installment in this series, Photoshop Color Correction: Fundamentals, for more detailed information about adjusting color in Photoshop.
