Hi! I am Jean-Francois O’Kane. I am the Studio Coach. Today in this little flip, I will show you how to use the color balance code disk in the Adobe RAW editor. So you will see that every set of images does start with an image of the color balance coach, but it takes one second, one additional frame, but you will see how we will be able to adjust the whole set of images just by adding one proper reference.
So I will select all the first story here that is made in the same lighting tradition. Open it in the RAW editor. You will see all the images right here. My first image being selected is the one with the target. The first thing I do is use the white balance tool right. Drop it on the gray patch to make sure that I have an exact even wide balance image on the great target. I will then use the crap tool and make a crap that will include only the information that I need to work with in the target. I will then adjust the histogram here to have the maximize histogram. So I will move the block here, and I will move the white here at where the right edge, but not to touch but just to still have detail and be considered not be touching. This is white with detail and you may adjust a little bit with the exposure to make sure that everything fits. You have nice pix. So our black, gray and two whites are here.
When the angle of the target is not perfectly facing the light, you may have this little effect of extended bomb. You see that there is a different exposure from this end to this end on the gray of the maximum center and the two pix here need to be separated by a whole between the two. So the two white need to difference and the black need to adjust.
So once I have this setting made, the message is included in that image with the little symbol here. I will now select all and I will synchronize. When you press synchronize, Adobe RAW is looking image with the little blue frame here and we will use the information in this frame and copy it to all frame. It will copy the little text that sits here, the instruction how to process it.
Now, let us press synchronize. It asks me what information I want to synchronize. I want to synchronize everything about the crapping. So I press letter K and look at the images that are now changing one after the other to reflect what I have decided to make as a change. And you see all the images exactly exposed according to the twig I have done on the color balance coach image.
Once our images are ready and set, it is time to either save done the RAW editor will close and the information will stay within the image or save the image. It will save the image like this and be ready for post processing or open the image. It will open this image in PhotoShop and let you work on it for the final enhancement, special effect or framing.
Enjoy your color balance coach as the first step in having perfect picture all the time. I am Jean-Francois O’Kane. I am the Studio Coach.
