Chapter 3. Raw Hide: Mastering Camera Raw > Camera Raw Essentials - Pg. 56

The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers Step Five: We'll start by looking at the White Balance setting. When you open a photo in Camera Raw, Photoshop looks at the White Balance setting that was used when the photo was taken, and it dis- plays that setting in the White Balance pop-up menu. If the white balance looks good to you, you can leave it set as-is. If the white balance was set correctly (or if you just want to see if you can come up with a setting that looks better to you), you can apply a preset setting by choosing one from the White Balance pop-up menu. When you choose a new white balance, the preview updates so you can see how this new setting will affect your photo.
