Removing Blue from Shadows

This technique can be applied to a number of similar color correction problems such as removing the excess blue in shadows.

Select the shadows of the image. The Select Color Range tool works here.

■ Create a new Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer; in the dialog select the

Blues from the Edit list, and reduce the Saturation for the Blues by 50 points. This removes most of the blues from the shadows, but retains some blue so the image still looks realistic.

Other options might include reducing the yellow from a tungsten light source, or removing a color caused by reflected light.
