Photoshop CS Photo Filters

Photoshop CS has a new Photo Filters effect hidden in the Image > Adjustments menu. It’s primarily of use to photographers who want to apply familiar filter effects to their image, rather than use the program’s color correction facilities. Or, it can be used to quickly add filter-like color for special effects.

For example, films are produced (even today) balanced for a particular kind of light source. The most common films are designed to produce accurate colors when exposed under daylight illumination, but a few professional films are balanced for the much more orange light produced by incandescent lamps. Back in the olden days, most photographers owned a set of filters that would convert one kind of illumination to the other (at the cost of an f-stop or two of exposure). A tungsten-balanced film can be exposed under daylight if a Kodak Wratten 85B filter is used to correct the light.
