What I will do is to open the levels window and use the white dropper to click on the area I think its white. The rest of the picture will take reference from the pt u clicked

There are many ways to correct color.

You can use the color balance. (pump up the blue in this case.)

You can use the levels and adjust the different color channels.

You can use curves and select the lightest, middle gray and darkest points.

You can shoot in RAW and colour manage from there.

:D

White, black or grey all can :).

If really don't have, then you have to add blue to your pic already ;).

want to try this method above but dun know how..
but i manage to find the "auto level" and "auto contrast" command




After apply the auto level and auto contrast..
The photo become overexposed (from histogram)...



Roygoh has helped mi to correct the color liao. but is this still considered properly exposed?? or over exposed liao???

The histrogram shows the distribution of brightness values within the image. In your image there is a predominance of near white features such as the light coloured background. This will naturally give you a peak near the extreme right. Whether a image is over/underexposed depends on how you want it to be and not by looking at the histrogram.

Anyway, IMO, the colours have been overcorrected, such that it has a slight blue tint now. The colour under the white tent shelter should be slightly warm, so a mild yellow cast is actually realistic and acceptable.

IMHO, there is no 'best' method.

Different situations require different color correction methods. I guess that is why PS included so many methods.

Happi playing :D
