Hi all, my flash died this weekend while taken some prom pictures. As you can see below when compared to the other picture, the white background turned to a somewhat tan or peach-esh color. I do have PS Elements 9 and am still learning how to use it. Any help is greatly appreciated. Feel free to edit and repost.

yeah the WB in one is way to warm. I'm not sure how to use Elements, but it seems like it'd be an easy fix.
I really like two though! Looks great.

If this was a camera flash (rather than a studio strobe) you may have been firing before it had a full charge. The longer you use it, the longer it will take to re-charge. You may have lost some power due to this. Your flash may not be broken.


Canon 5D MkII gripped, Canon 7D gripped, Canon 40D gripped, Canon XTI (IR) gripped, Canon 17-55 2.8 IS, Canon 60 Macro 2.8, Canon 70-200L 2.8 IS , Canon 24-105 4.0, Tokina 11-16 2.8, Canon 50mm 1.8, Sekonic L-358, Canon Speedlite 580-EX II, (2)430-EX, Pocket Wizards, lots of other stuff that seems to keep growing...:lol:

she looks like a caterpillar in the second picture :/, but composition looks pretty good. the pick background does take away from the picture, would have looked better if it was white, but you cant help your flash dying on you.

Thanks, Scott

In PSE, you can go to the Levels dialog, and you have 3 options to pick with the dropper. Black/White/Neutral Grey. Once you do that, the white balance will adjust accordingly.

You can then use the Modify skin tone to get the skin color to become natural.
