Adjusting white balance

You can use the White Balance tool to remove unwanted hue from an image. For example, if you take a photo at sunset and the resulting image has a reddish hue, you can use the White Balance tool to remove it. You can save your options as a preset for future use.

To remove a color cast from an image:

  1. In Edit mode, in the Color group, click White Balance.
  2. Click an image area that should be white or gray. The color square shows the color of the original pixel on the left, and the modified pixel on the right.
  3. To specify the strength of the white balance adjustment, move the Strength slider. Higher settings remove more of the unwanted color.
  4. Click Done to save your changes, or click Cancel to discard your changes and return to the Edit pane.
