Re: White balance: Photoshop vs Kelvin settings

In the old days, film was bought with a specific Kelvin rating.

Much greater accuracy can be achieved now, and on demand, and we can take into account colour shifts. Canon calls this "white balance adjustment" and can be applied automatically or manually in-camera. As well as in post-processing of course.

To get what you want, you will almost certainly need to work with more than just degrees Kelvin.

One technique available in post is to sample a spot colour in one photo and make the WB adjust to match the same colour spot in another. SThe background may go off as a result.
