Color Me Badd: color correction for phot... > Warming Up or Cooling Down a Photo

Warming Up or Cooling Down a Photo

Back in the day, when we needed to adjust our camera to a particular lighting situation (let’s say the image would come out too blue or too warm because of the lighting), we would use color filters that would screw onto the end of our lens. Now we “warm up” or “cool down” a photo digitally using Elements 3’s Photo Filter adjustment layer. Here’s how::

Step One

Open the photo that needs warming up (or cooling down). In the example shown here, the photo is too cold and has a bluish tint, so we want to warm it up and make it look more natural. Go to the Layers palette and choose Photo Filter from the Create Adjustment Layer pop-up menu at the top of the palette (its icon looks like a half black/half white circle).
