Tips for color correction in Photoshop!
One thing that irks me is having to color correct an image. The best part is, I don't even know what the "correct color" is! I know some of you have tried doing it but ultimately just color graded it (meaning stylized it a bit).
I made a video to help people color correct images in Photoshop without really knowing what the real correct color is. This is done in three simple steps!
I would also like to add that this is in no way the method to color correct an image professionally. That is done for hours on end. This is just a simple guide for fast but decent results! Enjoy!

Thanks, really nice video. Simple steps and it can make your picture look awesome ^^.
This is a pretty decent videos for beginners to watch and learn from. Also, as a professional, one of the worst things that I see amateurs do is saturate their photos way, way, way too much and it looks horrible. Please do NOT oversaturate, it doesn't make the colors pop, it just makes the image look horrible and grainy and the colors bleed.
That is actually one of my very first mistakes in Color correcting. I often sugarcoat it saying that the image pops. Anyway, after seeing other people's works and trying to develop my own style, I realized that the best pictures are only subtly corrected. Even a soft light haze can make a picture look good if done correctly. Another annoying thing is how people mistake color grading for correction.
Well, This video is very much useful. I think it would be very much beneficial for us to make the colour correction using photo shop software. Before starting this process you have to make sure that your are using the right colour and the colour space.
