144. Correct Color Manually


Although the eye is more sensitive to differences in lightness and contrast than it is to color, when the color spectrum in a photograph is out of balance, it stands out like a sore thumb. For example, old photographs can appear to have a red cast, and photos taken without enough light can have a yellow cast. Color casts happen when all the colors in an image tend to show a bias toward one frequency, rather than displaying no bias at all. Even an image that is predominantly green can have a red color cast as a result of aging, which drags both the greens (and the opposites that make them stand out) toward the yellow side of the color spectrum. You can use the Remove Color Cast option in Photoshop Elements to correct a color-cast issue.
