3. Adjust with Camera Raw Editor

Use the Camera Raw to adjust the images. Adjust the Temperature and Tint sliders. Use the White Balance tool etc.

NOTE: Many digital cameras today can take RAW images instead of or in addition to JPEG images. When you set your camera to take RAW images, whatever camera settings like, white balance etc that are set are embedded in the file, but not applied to the image. However, if you don’t shoot RAWs with your camera, you still can do image adjusting with the Camera Raw Editor. You don’t get all of the advantages you get from starting with a RAW image, but at least you can use the same techniques and sliders. You may find that the results you get are not only better, but also easier and quicker to apply.
