Customer Question
Hi I'm trying to learn...
Hi I'm trying to learn Lightroom on my macbook. I have 2 questions: 1. if you have a photo that's off in white balance in D mode you can use the eyedropper to correct it. Just click on something sort of gray? Beige? White? If something sort of gray (saw a quick video) is good enough why do people mess with 'gray cards' etc? 2. what do they have that's comparable in Photoshop, I use that too. Thanks!!

Hi there, my name is ***** ***** I'll do my best to help you today. Sometimes using a grey card helps with the white balance. Sometimes an eyedropper doesn't do the job they specifically want. Photoshop is an great program too but there is also Gimp, Acorn, Iris, Pixelmator, Pixel Image Editor and Photoline.

They are worth looking into as an alternative. I have used Gimp and it's handy. I hope this answered your questions today, thank you for choosing JustAnswer.

OK how do I do white balance in PS? Is Gimp free? thanks!
Mac Support Specialist: ComputerChic, Consultant replied 11 months ago

Yes Gimp is free and I'll take you through some white balance in Photoshop.

You do this 2 different ways;

  1. Click Image, Adjustments, Color balance and use the slider to adjust the balance.
  2. Click Image, Adjustments, Curves[choose white dropper].

Using the 1st option works most of the time and gives you the control you need. But

if you need a more detailed control the use curves. It all depends on what your doing with your image.

Thanks you, is there anything else I can help you with?

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
