Photoshop Elements :: Best Way To Color Correct Very Blue Photos Taken Underwater Scuba Diving?

Jul 10, 2013

What is the best way to color correct the very blue photos taken underwater scuba diving? Most pictures were take at about 50-70' depth with an Olympus point and shoot fe-360 with an underwater housing. The camera was set on the underwater scene 2 setting. I just want to get the vibrant colors back that were present in the great corals, sponges and fish in the BVI's.

Lightroom :: How To Color-correct / Color-match Lot Of Photos To Certain Target

Feb 11, 2012

I have something like 1,850 photos, taken in RAW and later converted to DNG, to create a stop motion. All the photos were taken with the same camera (Canon 5D Mk II) and most of them with a 24-70L. All were taken in the same lighting conditions (in an interior, with the house lighting from flourescent lights) and the same day, in a period of maybe 2 or 3 hours. Each "take" was with the exact same camera and exposure parameters.
When processing the photos in Lightroom (using the LR4 beta) I can see some minor but very noticeable differences between color an exposure in the photos of the same "take". The exposure can be more or less automatically corrected by the Matching total exposures (although I think this doesn't work when the exposures are really similar, but there are some subtle differences like in this case, say, something along ~1/5 stop or so), but I haven't found how to try to match the white balance. All of the photos have already been set to a specific WB (I took a ColorChecker Passport at the beginning of the session), but there are still some differences between some of the shots. Some of them look a tad more greener. I blame the flourescent bulbs, but I'm not sure of the real cause.
So, the question is: is there a way to match the color balance of a series of photos to a target one? I really don't want to go photo by photo setting the white balance manually. Is there a tool like the Match total exposures, but for color balance? I have already tried with the automatic white balance, but the problem is that the decided WB for the photos is not the one I need, and I need to have the same WB for all the session, and this could change from different takes. The difference between shots is usually around 4 or 5 "points" in the Tint scale, some are with Tint +11, some with +15.
Or any other tool that could process this after? At the end I'll use JPGs to create the stop motion, so if there is a tool that could process the exported jpgs it could work too.

Corel Photo Editing :: Underwater Color Correction

Nov 26, 2007

Need color correcting my underwater shots.

The only posts I ever see on any site usually deal with Photoshop. I've been getting decent results using one step photo finish and then sliding the overall brightness bar to a negative position usually -10 to -30. I then go to fade correction and use a value of 46. This seems to do a decent job. My wife and I are avid snorkelers so I'm usually taking my pictures at a depth of 10' - 30' of water with an internal flash.

Paint.NET :: Underwater Pictures - Adjusting Color Levels

Jul 23, 2011

I take a lot of underwater pictures usually quite badly . I am looking for adjusting the color levels.

I am guessing I have to create layers to adjust them properly as just fiddling with the Red on the main image isn't really giving me great results.

Illustrator :: Exporting IOS GUI Elements In PNG In Correct Hex Color?

Apr 30, 2013

I would like to export some GUI elements as PNGs for an iPhone application and encountered the following problem:
What I did:

1. The developer gave me an hex code with that I should produce the GUI elements

2. I set the color in illustrator and exported the GUI elements as PNGs

3. The developer imported them and we noted a difference in color between my GUI PNGs and the color of a background element set in the ios app via the same hex code.
I work on:

- MacBook Retina
- Illustrator document color mode is and was always RGB
- I experimented with color profile settings in Illustrator and Mac System Preferences but don't really know what the settings mean and dont have good feeling playing arround with them

Photoshop Elements :: Photos Look Like Film Negatives After Color Correcting

Aug 1, 2013

I tried following Scott Kelby's instructions for color correcting digital images in PSE 10. I was entering the values he gave for the R,G and Blue channels. I got off track and probably missed a step. Anyway, now when I try any of the auto correction features, my images look like film negatives and not like a regular digital image. How can I re-enable the auto correction features (levels, color correction, etc.) ?

Photoshop :: Photos Opening In Blue / Green And Purple Colors As If Filter Applied

Oct 29, 2013

When I go to open photos - they are opening in blue-green-purple colors as if a filter is being applied.  The color pallette is also appearing with the same blue-purple colors.  In the layers pallette - the icon of the image appears in the normal colors and no filters, etc. have been applied.  It's all starting from when selecting the photo to be opened in photoshop.

Lightroom :: How To Colour Correct Photos For CMYK

Nov 14, 2007

I'm doing a set of postcards that will send to print using offset.

I will tidy up in PS and correct in Lightroom.

It's just when I make the corrections in LR(inRGB) and send to PS to convert to CMYK.

I convert to CMYK in PS only to loose some colour corrections.

you can only export as RGB in lightroom.

So what is Lightroom used for then? Only digital print or web? Does RAW have a CMYK function?

How can I maintain the correct colour to output as CMYK onto an offset printer using LR?

What is the best way to colour correct Photos for CMYK?

Lightroom :: Cannot Import Photos To The Correct Drive

I cannot convince Lightroom 4.1 running on Windows 7 to import to the drive given in Catalog Settings>Location. It invariably imports to the drive where the Lightroom application resides... correct folder name but wrong drive. I've checked everything, and both the Windows Users Photo folder and Windows Photo Library folders are pointing to the correct drive as well.

Photoshop :: How To Get Correct Color Screen Display

Nov 24, 2013

I photograph a bright red car in raw mode on a digital slr (Canon 20D) set to Adobe rgb 1998  and view it in Breeze Browser and it looks just as I remember it. I open it into Pshop CS5 extended (which is set to Adobe rgb1998, Europe ISO Coated Fogra27, (as I am UK and this is what a calibration company set our works proofer to)  gray gamma 2.2 dot gain 20% and its become a little desaturated.

Sampling it and comparing screens and colours with Breeze Browser its definitely less red, a bit more orange red instead. I need to up saturation to return the red, both in RAW converter and also after image opened if not done so beforehand in RAW converter. Colors just look muted.
What tests can I carry out to find out what is going on ?
Perhaps create a rgb 255 0 0 image in a way not influenced by photoshop and photo the monitor, then open this in photoshop and sample it. However that would be influenced by the exposure of the camera. Maybe I need to create a Kodak grey card type image and establish correct exposure for the monitor brightness first. so what would that be as rgb ?
I know though that Pshop is displaying duller. Once upon a time we had Adobe gamma and one would go through the calibration wizard to set up Photoshop having already set up the monitor.
What do we have to do after installing CS5 extended or CS4 to ensure Pshops display is correct ?
I have Adobe gamma in the control panel, Is this something we still have to do in CS5, I wonder if its there because I still have Pshop 7 installed which used that wizard.
XP pro is my OS.

Photoshop :: Correct Color Brightness Settings

May 9, 2008

as some of you who work in TV know, video uses color bars to set up your source material in order to insure that levels in video will be output properly.

please see the above PDF. i created the BG in photoshop, then imported it into indesign for a half-page magazine ad.

this PDF is a high-quality output of PDF. i printed it on my $99 ink jet printer just to see how it looks on paper and it doesn't look too bad.

but is there some way i can test the print output without having to get a printed proof from the print company, that will insure that the ad's colors and levels are set properly?

i guess what i mean is, is there some way that a color bar system similar to TV can be used to compare with the PDF?

Photoshop :: Text Color Not Staying When Picking Blue?

Mar 12, 2008

I have a weird problem which is either operator error (Most likely) or something wrong with my CS3. I am trying to set my text color to a standard blue (0000FF in paint shop or anything close) When I set it to that it displays the color in the little color box but when I apply it goes back to a purple color? All other colors that I pick seem to stay but not the plain old blue? 8bit 16bit 32bit it doesn't matter nor does changing the mode to RGB or CMYK or whatever! I do notice in the select text color box that next to my color is a warning box that says" Warning : out of gamut for printing" but it say's that on other colors that it will pick and stay fine.
