White Balance defines the “true white” in a photo. Most cameras have a variety of white balance presets for different lighting situations, but in some cases, you may need to adjust the result. An image that is too “cool” will have a bluish color cast. An image that is too “warm” will have a yellowish color cast. The White Balance adjustments can quickly correct these issues.
- Open an image in Single Photo View, then click the edit icon to open the Edit Panel.
- On a computer or tablet, twirl down the arrow next to White Balance.
- On a phone, tap the edit icon , then tap the color icon .
- On a computer or tablet, adjust the Temp °K and Tint sliders to remove any unnatural color cast.

Temp °K –Temp °K refers to the color temperature of the light, which is measured in degrees Kelvin. This slider warms or cools an image by adding blue or yellow to change the color temperature.
