Adobe Photoshop or Elements Tip of the Week:

Correcting Color Tints with a Photo Filter Adjustment in Photoshop and PSE

You can also watch this tip on video on our blog: Correcting Color Tints with a Photo Filter Adjustment in Photoshop and PSE [Video]

When the color balance is off in your photos, you'll sometimes have a photo that is too blue or too yellow. Scanned images of older photos can have a red or orange shift. Gym and photos can be yellow or orange and skin tones often look more natural with a little warming. Photoshop and Elements have an easy, non-destructive way to correct the color in your photos. Here's how:

Open the image in Photoshop or Elements.

Create a Photo Filter Adjustment Layer by clicking the "Create a New Fill or Adjustment Layer" icon in the Layers panel. This icon looks like a circle which is half black and half white and can be found at either the top or the bottom of the layers panel.

From the drop-down menu, choose Photo Filter. This activates the Photo Filter dialog box which contains a number of presets.

To use a preset, click the drop-down menu and select a preset like warming, cooling, or a color filter to fix the tint problem with your image. In the sample, the beauty looks a little green because of the reflection of the trees. To fix the image, I chose a red filter.

Move the density slider to increase or decrease the tint until your color problem is neutralized.

When you are satisfied with the color, you'll want to do two things before confirming the filter. First, click the layer visibility icon which looks like an eyeball at the bottom of the filter dialog to see the "before" image. Click it again to see the image with the filter applied. This is a good way to check your work. Second, clip the filter to your photo layer by clicking the clipping icon at the bottom of the dialog. This looks like a box with an arrow. You want to do this to apply the filter to your photo only - instead of applying it to every layer below the photo in your project.

Click the X or the double-arrow at the top right to hide the filter dialog.

To make changes to the filter later, double-click the camera icon in the adjustment layer to return to the filter dialog.

If you decide you don't like the tint at all, you can delete the adjustment layer by dragging it to the trash bin in the layers panel.

Using this method, your photo is never altered and you donít have to undo subsequent work to change the tint.

Have a great week and we'll see you at DesignerDigitals!
