Re: filmscanners: Colour fix problem
1. use the eyedropper to sample a midtone that contains the color cast
(I used a point on the MIG's fuselage between the wing and the number)
2. fill a new layer with the sampled color and invert the layer
3. change the layers blend mode to 'color' and reduce opacity to suit (~50%)
