Colour Balance in Photoshop CS5

To change the colour balance of an image you should use the Colour Balance command.


To adjust the colour balance you should go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Colour Balance. Name the layer appropriately. In the Colour Balance dialogue box choose the tonal range you want to change e.g. Shadows, Midtones or Highlights then drag the sliders. If you choose Shadows you can then change the colour of the darker areas in the image using the sliders.


Experiment with the settings to get a greater understanding of the impact that changing these settings can have on an image.
