Removing Color Cast

Color cast refers to a general shift of color to one extreme or another: an image can be said to have a yellow or red cast, for instance. While sometimes introduced into images intentionally (to create a certain mood or effect), color casts are usually unhappy accidents. They can result from any number of circumstances, from a scanner in need of calibrating to tired chemicals in a film developer’s lab. Even light from a fluorescent bulb can create unwanted color shifts in photographs.

Thankfully, Photoshop Elements gives you a couple of ways to deal with color cast: a wonderful little automatic menu command, and a dialog box that allows you to manually color-correct your image by adding and subtracting color values in small increments.
