Color Cast Removal

Effects to the film material due to chemical processes even to already developed film, fading of photographic prints, different light sources during image acquisition – there are many reasons why images may show color casts. Manual correction is time consuming and can lead to falsified colors. The SilverFast Neutral Pipette is a tool, which makes color cast removal very easy.

A mouse click on the icon “Pipette” in the vertical toolbar opens a drop-down menu. By selecting the entry “Neutral Point” the mouse cursor turns into an eyedropper. By clicking on a color area of the image, which should appear neutral, the color correction is performed automatically. The exact change in color values ​​at this point can be seen in the tool dialog “Neutral Pipette”. The neutral point can be deleted and set again at any time.

  • Automatic color cast removal by setting a neutral point

  • Before/after comparison in RGB or CMY

  • Up to 4 neutral points with SilverFast Ai Studio 8
