Hi,

Need help in fixing the color balance/ sharpness ( too red)on a whole batch of pictures taken at an evening gathering indoors.

I would really appreciate if anyone could fix this and show me how to do this in CS2 and then apply it ona whole of of other pictures (apply setting to multiple pics).

These are for a wedding related ceremony ( though not the actual wedding )and really important to my cousin but I hate to give him the pic in this form. They have a high hopes .

I have reduced the size in MS photeditor for attaching. Original file size is 1290KB.

Thanks!! Please hurry he is coming in the evening to collect ( PST time).

Here is my edit....All I did was enhanced the color with the correct WB for the pic...I currently use the PS elements so I wouldn't know anything about CS2...Enjoy!

Couldyou tell me the settings you used so I could apply it to the other pictures. Did you use the levels control panel.

Thanks

This is with the white balance control on the Power Retouche plugin. Image Doctor's JPG Repair wouldn't touch the terrible JPG artifacts though.

Very sorry if this is too late .

I have problems with colour correction due to colour blindness and tend to shy away from situations such as this, but I did a quick run through with 20/20 Color MD from Phototune. It is a very straightforward no nonsense method to correct colour in the same way you have your eyes tested. It showsa number ofcorrectionsand you choose which looks best until the final step when you can fine tune if you wish.

Somebody with better, (or any !), colour perception will have no trouble with this. A lot quicker than PS, each image can be corrected in around 15 seconds. 30 seconds if you fine tune at the end !!

Again, sorry if this is too late but have a look anyway for future use, there is a trial available, http://www.phototune.com/2020_intro.html

This is my quick go, (remember I am colour blind :-)).

Stevekin.

Thank you Stevekin.

I will give phototune a shot.

I was able to cirrect the white balance fairly quickly after reading a CS2 tutorial online using layers and levels.

The pictures turned out pretty good after that.
