01 January 2004, 07:32 AM
i have a series of photos i shot in the early morning when the sunlight was very cool.

anyone know how to warm the pictures up in Photoshop?

image > adjust > hue/saturation. Also try image > adjust > levels to change the white balance just in case the color isn't quite rich enough.

you can also convert to CMYK the go to Curves and start pushing yellow up in the percentages that you want to warm up.

i find that colour balance gives more control and adjusts the colours more naturally than hue sat

other method would be to use the rendering filter for lighting effects where you can achief good resaults beacuse you can set the light source and kind of light like diffuse light or spotlight

Damn, a German PS...that looks scary :scream:

You would think the same about a portuguese PS :surprised

I'm with halo in this one, color balance is better then Hue/Sat, but you could also use Channel mixer or Selective Color for that.

:love: Why PS is cool?


damn smiles!!!

i ruined the white balance when i originally scanned the slides, so i will need to rescan them all.

hopefully, i'll have better luck then.

i'll post some WIPs up when i get there.

you have to rescan it ? why didnīt you keep your originals...?

hmm...unless you've really screwed them up you should be able to swing them back...spose it depends on how much damage you have done and how much you want them to improve.

working in 16 bit may give you a slight edge on colour correction as well.

I'd just pull some blue out by using the blue channel in the curves tool. Works pretty slick for me. Also, 16bit will give you finer control if you have lots of correction to do. Little stuff will be fine in regular mode.
