Re: filmscanners: Color Cast removal/and blue blues
Make up a couple of layers that blend about 50% opacity wise for colour. In
the first one, chop out the whale and make the whole layer into a filter
that gets the background colour right. In the second one chop out all
except the whale and do the same thing.
Sounds hard if you've never done it. Isn't.
Even Photo Deluxe does this OK for those of without the wherewithal to own PS
