Using selective adjustment tools for accurate white balance
Adobe Camera Raw is the best place to correct white balance for realistic-looking colours.
But as well as adjusting white balance over the whole image, the Graduated Filter and Adjustment Brush also give you selective control.
Not only is this useful for cooling tones in a sky or warming tones in land – as we’ve done here, it’s also great if you have a scene with different light sources, such as a portrait captured with a mix of daylight and tungsten lighting.

Click on a tone that you know to be white or neutral grey. Adobe Camera Raw will then detect the correct temperature.
