- In this project, I'm going to show you how to…quickly and easily use a gray scale target to…color correct an image.…Before I get started, I want to mention though…that this video and the next one are really designed…to be a sequence of videos that you would watch…because I'm going to explain the concept of…using the target in this video, and then we're going…to do the quick and easy method here,…and then in the next video we'll do the more…accurate and precise version.…All right, to get started, go ahead and launch…these two images, the books image…and the painting image, and notice that the…books image has a gray scale target in it.…
First let's discuss how the concept works.…You capture an image either with a scanner…or a digital camera, and you capture a gray scale target.…This is a 10 step gray scale target that I've actually…designed in a manufacturing cell specifically…for this process of scanning and digital photography,…for calibrating digital cameras and scanners,…and for doing color correction…like we're doing here today.…
