Working with Color

Most images imported from a digital camera or scanner will open in RGB mode. RGB is shorthand for red, green, and blue, the only three colors that your computer monitor actually displays. RGB combines the three colors in different proportions and intensities to create the thousands or milions of colors you see onscreen. RGB is Photoshop Elements’ default color mode, and is the best mode to work in when making color and tonal corrections.

Color cast refers to a shift of color to one extreme or another, and is sometimes introduced into digital photos or scanned images. The image at top left has an unfortunate pinkish cast, which I removed by applying the Auto Color Correction command (below right).
