Using the Tint Wheels
by Ellen Anon
Most of the time I use the Color Balance sliders and/or eyedropper to adjust the color cast in my images. However there are times when that isn’t enough, particularly if I’ve shot under mixed lighting conditions. That’s when the Tint Wheels can be particularly helpful. Using the Tint Wheels I can adjust the warmth - or coolness - of the midtones independently from the shadows or highlights. Sometimes whites become too warm when there’s incandescent lighting and so you can decrease the yellow tint in the whites.

After selecting the eyedropper, you can click on your photo and hold down the mouse. While held down, you can move the eyedropper around the photo, or even on another photo's thumbnail to choose a pixel. The entire image will show the effect of the new tint, and you can lift your finger off the mouse once you are happy with the color.
|Chaim, you are correct that you can search for the spot to click by holding down the mouse and dragging over parts of the picture. I'll edit the tip to include that fact. Thank you for reminding me! However once you let go of the mouse you have to reclick the eyedropper if you change your mind.|
