    Thanks for sharing. Besides just clicking the greypoint, any adjustments needed on curves?

    i tried this method on some of my jpegs

    the scene looked more "balanced", which i feel is not too warm looking

    but on those night shoots, i wonder if it should be slight orangey or the bluish-cool look? skin tone too cool to my liking.

    i ordered a WB filter thru one of the MO, collecting soon, waiting to see if it can make the process simpler on those jpeg-shooting days

    thanks for sharing

    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.

    Me too, but i'm not using PS, i'm using GIMP. Anyone here knows how to use GIMP to get this effect?

    Tiger Canon thanks for sharing, really apprieciate it, but like others mention its best if there is a video tutorial.

    There's another variation..

    Delete the curve layer, click on the "Average" layer, invert the image, then select bending mode as "overlay".

    Results are similar in some cases, different in another. Can't tell which one is more accurate.. unless someone did a test by doing custom white balance using a grey card and then comparing the results.. Not sure if anyone has done that before? care to comment which method is more accurate?

    Cool....your method is gonna be a new addition to my other 4 methods. There is no right or wrong way. Unless you work in the printing industry where colour rendition has to be 101% spot on all the time, I wont loose any sleep over it. Any WB improvement away from the camera body for the majority of the members here is a bonus. To strive for perfection is a different matter. Besides, WB is subjective most of the time as long as it's not drastically deviated fr real life.

    Just to add that whatever method is used in PS, there will be a difference between shooting in RAW and shooting in JPG. Shooting in RAW always yields an advantage when colour or exposure correction is required. Of course, you need to use the RAW program to do it. If you simply open the RAW in PS, and do the same steps, you may not see the difference.

    hello i tried the few methods, but i found one that gives pleasing results too =)

    start with the step of getting the "average" blur. (this is like the 'wow' discovery) then invert colour. use eyedropper to note the actual colour. (i copy the # value to clipboard, easier transfer of figures)

    if you have CS4, then create a 'photo filter' layer, using this colour as the custom colour. i push density to 100% (or other values, up to you) and check 'preserve luminosity'. i seem to get very nice results with this. looks natural.

    ok more side note: if you taking trees etc or stuff with strong colourations, then 'average' wont work. so pick a small area that should be neutral colour, average blur then invert it, then use this point as colour reference.
