Finding Neutral Gray in Photoshop
Adjusting the highlights and shadows in a photo is a regular job when retouching. Often the whitest and blackest areas are easy enough to find, but what about the mid-tones?
Colour casts can often be eliminated by neutralising the mid-grays and finding them is pretty easy…
- Add a layer and fill it with 50% gray (Shift + Backspace).
- Change the blend mode to Difference.
- Add a Threshold adjustment layer and drag the slider to the left so the whole image goes white.
- Slowly move the slider to the right and when the black areas appear, use your colour sampler tool to place a target point.
- Delete the Threshold and 50% gray layers.
- Click the mid-tone selection dropper in the Levels palette.
That should fix it!other page
