How to auto white balance using Photoshop
May I know how to do auto white balancing using Photoshop ?
When I use ACDsee6.0, there's an auto white balance command. I just have to choose the area which is supposed to be white/gray, and I can move the slider until the area becomes white.
How do I do that using Photoshop ?

The auto color is not auto white balancing leh....It make the picture's color look very strange most of the time when I used that.

Searching for white balancing using the Help command turns up results on using the Photo Filter command instead

To get the same effect as the ACDSee tool, use the "Levels" tool in PS.
Go to Layer/New Adjustment Layer/Levels and click OK when the new layer name panel pops up. When you see the Levels control panel, look at the bottom where you should see three eyedropper icons. Click on the eyedropper tool icon on the right, then move your cursor over your picture and click on an area that should be white. Thats it.
The advantage of using an Adjustment Layer rather than just the Level Tool is that you can adjust the strength of the effect you get by changing the opacity of the adjustment layer. If you do not like what you get, just delete the layer.
