Adjust White Balance – Digital Photography Tip of the Week

I am just finishing up my review of Adobe Lightroom. So far I am very impressed with Adobe’s new offering with only a few issues. This week’s tip is for Lightroom users.

I have talked in the past about how important proper white balance is in your photographs. If your camera has the ability to shoot RAW you have the ability to control white balance after you take the image. With Lightroom, you can now adjust your colour balance whether you shoot JPG or RAW in a non-destructive way.

In the Develop module of Lightroom, click on the White Balance Selector. As you move the eye dropper around your image, the image in the Navigator provides a live preview of the changes that will occur in your image with a new white balance selection.

If you regularly hide panes when working on an image, you may be missing out on some great features that Lightroom offers.

Until next time, happy shooting.
