    I love the color balance method. It is so fast and easy to control.
    The third technique using match color will be useful. I will experiment with combining it with color balance.
    Thanks Shane for all the tips

    Thumbs up again to PhotoshopZoo! Added another exotic and useful member to its video collection. Apart from the ebook products, I look forward to purchase all the video resources. Pretty expensive though (when converted to indonesian rupiah) but then again, excellent stuff NEVER come cheap :)

    Thank you Shane,
    This is easy to apply, well presented and sometimes it’s good to go back to Basics and remind us of these tools.
    Thank you again.

    Thanks, Shane. The second method you explained on your video seems to work better for me, and it seems easier as well. Your videos are most helpful, and enjoyable to watch, too.

    Nice, simply & quickly presented. But what would you do for multiple lighting source color casts? Fluorescent cast from above, natural light from side windows, incandescent lighting within?

    Hi. Could you also go the Selective Color and reduce the overcast color that way?
