Your best Color Correction in Photoshop
Feb 15, 2012

I am constantly looking for a better way to color-balance my images. Because of my shooting style I rarely use a WB-card so everything I need to correct will be during the RAW process and later on finetuning in PS.

A standard WB click in lightroom is a good start but I almost always need more correction in the highlights and shadows to get those clean realistic lifelike colors. Sometimes I use Curves/levels (blackpoint/whitepoint click), sometimes I use the color balance sliders with RGB samplepoints as guidelines (smooth but not always 100% accurate)

So...of all color-correction methods available in Photoshop, which one(s) do you find most effective and give the best results?

Cheers
Henrik
