I have several photos taken inside a well-lit church. Due to whatever lights they use, the photos are rather yellow. I tried "auto white balance" on them but that didn't really fix the problem, altough it helped a little. So then I tried playing with the color temp and tint sliders and couldn't seem to get anywhere close to the colors I wanted; they just exaggerated the problem.
The church as a statue wearing a white dress and an altar covered by a white tablecloth. I tried using the white balance eyedropper to select a portion of the dress or a portion of the tablecloth and that helps but I still don't think the colors look as natural as I'd like. Is there another approach to doing this that works better?
Also, I tweaked the white balance of a jpg image from the church until I finally got the colors looking pretty good then copied the white balance from the jpg to the associate raw file taken at the same time. That did not work well. The raw file got much yellower! Shouldn't the color balance from the corrected jpg and applied to the raw file give me the same end result for both the jpg and the raw file? If not, could you explain why?
BTW, I'm using C1 v11.
