To use the Color Balance command:

1 Make sure the composite channel is selected in the Channels palette. This command is available only when you're viewing the composite channel.

2 Open the Color Balance dialog box. (See "Making color adjustments" on page 132.)

3 Select Shadows, Midtones, or Highlights to select the tonal range on which you want to focus the changes.

4 Select Preserve Luminosity to prevent changing the luminosity values in the image while changing the color. This option maintains the tonal balance in the image.

5 Drag a slider toward a color you want to increase in the image; drag a slider away from a color you want to decrease in the image.

The values above the color bars show the color changes for the red, green, and blue channels. (For Lab images, the values are for the a and b channels.) Values can range from -100 to +100.
