The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers Step Three: First, we need to set some preferences in the Curves dialog so we'll get the results we want when color correcting. We'll start by setting a target color for our shadow areas. To set this prefer- ence, in the Curves dialog, double-click on the black Eyedropper tool (it's on the lower right-hand side of the dialog, the first Eyedropper from the left). A Color Picker will appear asking you to Select Target Shadow Color. This is where we'll enter values that, when applied, will help remove any color casts your camera introduced in the shadow areas of your photo.
