Basic Photo Corrections in Photoshop CS

Chapter Description

Adobe Photoshop and Adobe ImageReady include a variety of tools and commands for improving the quality of a photographic image. This lesson steps you through the process of acquiring, resizing, and retouching a photo intended for a print layout. The same workflow applies to Web images.

Removing a color cast

Some images contain color casts (imbalanced colors), which may occur during scanning or which may have existed in the original image. This photograph of the window has a blue cast. You’ll use the Auto Color feature in Photoshop CS to correct this. (ImageReady does not include the Auto Color command, so this task must be done in Photoshop.)

  1. Choose Image > Adjustments > Auto Color.

    Notice that the blue color cast is gone.

  2. Choose File > Save.
