Adjusting the color of a picture of the temperature can make a big difference for the image of feeling. Usually people prefer a warm color temperature instead of neutral, if you want your photo a cold look, you can adjust the color temperature cool.

Probably the easiest way is to use the White Balance and Color Temperature Slider tool in Adobe Camera Raw (ACR).

Set Adobe Camera Raw Use the color temperature

If you are working with a RAW file, you can simply open the file in Photoshop and automatically open the Camera Raw. If you want to set a JPEG or TIFF file, in Photoshop, go to File> Open ...

In the dialog box, select the file you want to open, and then the Camera Raw option is opened as a change (followed by a long list of RAW file types). Then open the file in Camera Raw.

In ACR, click the White Balance tool (at the top of the window) and click on an image area of ​​Buck Balance that should be a neutral color (dark gray and gray very light somewhere). Camera Raw is the correct color temperature and tint settings automatically selects the clicked to neutralize the area.

With curves that adjust the color temperature

Is an alternative way of adjusting the color temperature of an image using a curve fit. Photoshop Elements has no real curves to accommodate, so a curve fit is not as easy as Photoshop CS. However, you can perform curve fitting in Photoshop Elements, you need to install and install the Photoshop Elements Intelligent Curve Curve.

If you are using Photoshop Elements, you need to install the filters Smart bends and then open filter> easy.Filter> SmartCurve. In the top right corner of the window there are SmartCurve three digits of the red, green and blue values ​​on the current mouse position. For a neutral subject, we want all three of these values ​​to be the same, if your image is a color sweep, the values ​​are probably different.

Note the red, green and blue values.

To correct the color swarm using a bend to change the channel (on the right, he now says, RGB). If your image is cast a red or cyan, first select the red channel. If the image shows a green or magenta, select the green channel. If the image is blue or yellow, select the blue channel.

Now you want to correct the curve of this channel so that the values ​​are closer to the other values. The Check values ​​in the upper right corner of the Smart Curve window, turn the point to 111. Now this point draws. For a completely neutral image, to drag 176 (same as the green value, and also like the red value), but a bit of hot image, then prefer 170.

It may be the right after a single channel tuning, color temperature, but you often have to adjust two or all channels.
