5.5. #47 Correct Color with an adjustment layer

Color casts can be a problem with any type of photography. Color casts are those subtle colors that creep into an image and contaminate the colors and tones throughout the photograph. This can mean bluish landscapes at sunrise, greenish hair, and so on. They were a serious problem when everyone shot film because they could be hard to get rid of. With digital photography, correcting color by removing problem color casts has become a lot easier.

When you correct color with an adjustment layer, you gain a great deal of flexibility. If you decide that a previous color correction was not quite right as you continue to work on a photograph, you can always reopen the adjustment and do it again. That is always a great advantage of the nondestructive nature of adjustment layers. In addition, you can use the opacity of the layer to change how strongly the adjustment affects the photograph.
