    Will this work in Elements as well?

    • Steve says:

      Not sure – I only use Photoshop, but I’ll probably be getting a copy of elements down the road to see what works and what doesn’t.

    Hi Steve, this seems like a cool tip but for whatever reason when I double click the white eye dropper in the curves dialogue box the colour picker box doesn’t come up. Any Idea as to why its not? I’m running CS6.
    Thanks Steve, Love your work.

      Hi Grant –

      Sorry, not sure on that one. I just tired it in CS6 and it worked each time.

      Hi Steve, I just wanted to let you know that I went back and tried your colour balance trick once again. This time I got it to work, the colour picker box came up after double clicking the eye dropper, so I’m not sure what I was doing wrong. I used it on snow with detail and it worked nicely.
      Thanks.

    Video missing, just the beginning and ending text visible…no sound either.
