Using Automatic Color Balance
Using Automatic Color balance
After taking pictures of your custom you may find that the colors are off, this usually happens when taking pictures indoors with Incandesent Bulbs. Different lighting can make colors look untrue. When we are indoors our eyes get used to it and we don't notice, but it is especially noticable to the camera.
An easy way to fix this is Automatic Color Balance, I use Paint Shop Pro and you can download a demo to try it out. Other programs may have different names for the effect. Move the slider to cooler if your picture looks too orange from using an incandesent bulb. Don't be afraid to play around with the settings until your picture looks the most realistic.
As you can see in the first pic, the background that should be dark gray is almost orange, but after adjustment in the second pic it is true gray.
