Use Levels to Remove a Polaroid Color Cast

by Cliff Ping

Do you have any old Polaroid pictures that are turning yellow?

You can you fix this!

I will show you in this video how Photoshop’s Levels can be used to bring the color back to life in a yellowish Polaroid picture. The steps I discuss in the video are listed below.

Levels Set Highlight and Shadow Method

Step 1: Select, Image>Adjustments>Levels. (Ctrl+L)

Step 2: Redefine the high-light point first.
Select the highlight eyedropper and then click on the image where you think the brightest printable pixel (white) for that image resides.

Step 3: Now select the shadow eyedropper and then click on the image where you think the darkest printable pixel (black) for that image resides.

You can try more than one place. Your last choice is what the eyedropper sets as the shadow point.

The image might still need some color tuning and minor blemish repair but the color cast is gone.
