Yes, easy, if it's raw just drag the white balance slider to the right. If it's jpeg use a photo filter layer.

Well, the important question is what software do you have/use? If you look at these examples each took a slightly different approach, often with a different app, either a Raw processor or a Photoshop-type editor.

OK, so you have an old version of Photoshop, but when you say you've be "working on" the photo for a month, what software have you been using? And, when you are talking about Raw, what Raw processing software would you be using?

In case you don't know, the Canon Raw processing software Digital Photo Professional (DPP) is quite capable and easy to get started in, and is free!

Oh sorry if I was not clear- Ive been trying to get shot for a month- meaning with a camera... But due to me being a noob and low light in the bathroom- this is the best one I got so far... but I messed up on the white balance.

I will try the DPP if I can get my dvd drive to work! :lol: Thanks!

that means nothing... doesn't matter how old your photoshop version is, you can still white balance this shot without issue.

go to FILE > OPEN AS > Select the file you want to open > In the "Open As" selection box at the bottom of the window select "Camera Raw" > click on the OPEN button.

It will open the file in Camera Raw and you will have an easier way to correct the .jpg file or any other image file for that matter.

If you have version CS3 and newer I know that this will work, I'm not sure about other versions but I think it may work for CS2 as well but it's been a long time since I had CS2.

Maybe next time think about turning the camera on it's side to use the wasted space at the edges?
