I recently took some shots in a garage with available natural light and the door up. I was shooting the white walls. Used a dSLR and a P&S, both with WB set to cloudy. This worked great for the P&S, but the dSLR images all have a tan/brownish cast. The dSLR shots are sharp and show lots of detail, so I'd like to fix the color. I'm using Rawker to convert, and deselecting sRGB helps some, but not enough. I tried correcting in PS 7, but my adjustments haven't been very effective (levels, color channel saturation, etc.). BTW, the RGB histograms are all very narrow. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Best thing I can suggest is to post examples. Hard to make suggestions without seeing exactly what's going on.

Try "Selective Color" in PS7. I have a couple of plug-ins with WB sliders but never had any problems using selective color to tweak up the WB when I was using PS7.

You can also use a program called "Color Pilot" I've used it a lot and if you know something should be white, then you select the "white' icon, go up on the picture and rectangel what should be white and click start. VIOLA!! things are now corrected!
