I promised to show how to remove color casts with Picasa before I learned that installing Picasa on my computer would require that it catalog the images on my hard drives. I have two one terrabyte hard drives with thousands of images. It would take a long, long time... so... I found this tutorial on YouTube, which explains the process very well. Hope this will do!

Yes, it does. It appears to work much the same as the eyedropper feature in both Photoshop Elements and Photoshop.

If the color balance change doesn't work well when one particular area is selected, then choose another.

This is a really nice feature when you have a photo of a painting that has a white background that appears blueish or greyish. Simply touch to the white background and it should clean up nicely.

In Photoshop there are three eyedropper choices, black, white and neutral grey. The white eyedropper should be placed on a place where there should be brilliant white, such as a spectral highlight. Black on the blackest area in a photo, and with the grey, that's where the fun comes in. You need to try to find a place that should be a neutral color. Selecting in different areas of a photo will yield different results.

In Photoshop, if you don't like what you have, you can hold down the alt key and press the Cancel button and Cancel will become Reset, so you can try again.
