Removing a color cast
Some images contain color casts (imbalanced colors), which may occur during scanning or which may have existed in the original image. This photograph of the window has a blue cast. You’ll use the Auto Color feature in Photoshop CS to correct this. (ImageReady does not include the Auto Color command, so this task must be done in Photoshop.)
- Choose Image > Adjustments > Auto Color.
Notice that the blue color cast is gone.
- Choose File > Save.
