An “almost” hidden feature of Photoshop

There is a feature of Photoshop that helps to remove a color cast that, I am sure, few people know.

Here is the original picture. A very difficul situation due to the various ligth sources present.

Now go to the drop down “Image” menu. Select “Ajustments” and then “Match Color”.

Click on the Neutralize box and “Voilà” the job is done!. If you want, you can play also with the three sliders: Luminance, Color Intensity and Fade.

Here is my result:

I am pretty sure that the Photoshop "gurus" can achieve a similar or even better result with some different approach, but I think with much more effort.

In any case, if in doubt, try first the easiest way.

All the best
