    Fixing green and magenta in my image

    StanWelks Level 1

      in CS5 I am reading a book and learning the program, I want to white balance an image, though I am not entirely clear  what is meant by:

       

      "You do not want neutral colors to have green or magenta."

       

      Does this simply mean that any part of my image that should be white or grey, though that has green or magenta should be clicked on? If not, what is the way to do this?

       

      Thanks.

          Yes. Clicking the WB tool on it, will make it neutral (white or grey).

           

          This doesn't mean you absolutely have to: sometimes you want to leave a cast for artistic purposes or because you really had some colored light (in a night club or a rock concert, some street neon lights too) falling on your neutral subject.
