Adjusting Kelvin and Tint sliders



  • Johnnie Chen

    Excuse me, i have a question : so why color temperature of an image within the range of 800 to 14000 degrees Kelvin ? Not from 2000 to 50000 Kelvins ?
    Hope so you give me an answer as soon as possible.

    I understand the use of the eyedropper in setting the Kelvin (blue to yellow) portion of white balance.  What I don't understand is why isn't there some similar technique to assist in setting the Tint (green to magenta) portion of white balance. 

    Sometimes I use the eyedropper and the image is corrected in kelvin but made much worse in tint.

    I remember using a viewing a color bar chart on my old TV through a blue filter to adjust the tint.  Can't something be developed in the software to perform the blue filter function or whatever. 

    Some images I can do fairly quickly and confidently by eye, but others take time and have low confidence that they really look right.

    Capture One makes the color look better than any other software I've ever used.  Just hoping to learn how to get consistently great color even more quickly and confidently.
