Remove a Color Cast in Photoshop Elements: Overview

            You can easily remove a color cast in Photoshop Elements from an image. A color cast occurs when the color channels in an image are not in balance. The undesired effect is often an unusual tint of color and is a common result of improper lighting in a photograph. Fluorescent lights are one of the biggest culprits leading to a color cast in an image. The “Remove Color Cast” command is designed to balance the color in your image and remove the cast.
