I have a series of images that are color photos of a three-dimensional, cream colored object. The objects have clipping paths around them and sit on a dark background. I have some new images that I need to incorporate into the layout, but their color is a different "cast", more gray than the other cream images.
I would like to apply the original color to the new images. It would be best if this could be done in the InDesign document, but if necessary, I can do it in Photoshop. I just need to know the best approach. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
InDesign can not colour correct images - nor is it an image editor of any sort.
Best tool for this is Photoshop.
Try the photoshop forums.
@Rick – this is a task for PhotoShop. Period.
You could use correction (adjustment)* layers with a variety of color manipulation settings without losing the orginal pixel color values. Depends on the version you are using how many settings are available.
* I'm on a German version of PhotoShop, so the names could be slightly different;
"Einstellungsebenen" with "Korrekturen" ("Adjustment Layers" with "Corrections")
There's a remote possibility that assigneing a different profile to the image in ID would get you the color you want, but it isn't really a reliable method. I'd use Photoshop, too.
