Adjusting the white balance using levels

Thursday, November 25, 2010Morgan

It can happen!
You have everything set...and then you take THE perfect shot and it has a horrendous white balance :|
No fear, you can fix it. 

So on this I had a perfect white balance in camera BUT for this tutorial I made it horrible and fixed it.

This little trick will save some serious sanity time :)

Open your bad white balance image that you love ♥ and make a levels adjustment layer. Get out your gray dropper...and for the trick, the corners of the eyes are a great spot to get your gray.
I click on the various spots until I get that perfect color I like.
