These filters are designed to add only the amounts and types of colors needed. Since it's difficult to correct for fluorescent lights digitally, you'll want to investigate this option if you shoot many pictures under fluorescents and are getting "greenish" results. You can also shoot in the RAW format if your digital camera has that feature, and correct the color as you convert in Photoshop.
