The Color Temperature filter allows adjusting color temperature of the light source in an image in Kelvin. It can be used to correct the bluish cast in overcast photos, or even (to some extent) the red cast in photos taken under incandescent light with the camera set to daylight.

You can also use it to get interesting creative effects.

«Presets» are a common feature for several Colors commands. You can find its description in Del 8.1.1, «Colors Common Features».

Original temperatur

This is the estimated original color temperature of the light source in Kelvin. You can change it because the image doesn't necessarily encode that information correctly or at all (and you might or might not have measured it). In addition there's often a mix of light sources (a window, a fill-in flash, etc). But above all else you can get interesting creative effects by changing it.

Ønskt temperatur

Dette er den ønskte temperaturen i Kelvingrader.

Blending Options, Preview and Split view
