Colour cast (eg Gimp)
« on: June 02, 2013, 09:31:18 PM »

Camera lens; large speck like dust; gives a slight center color cast on raw images.
(cast is hard to detect or not so obvious; noticeable in the resulting images)

Best ways in removal; so as to restore back original color?

Shoot against a black or dark background at all focal lengths to determine size and color of speck cast?
Then apply counter numerical filters or certain tools in removing the cast then somehow adjusting the area colors back to original?
Or another alternative method?

here's how to shoot a "white reference" ("lens cast calibration" / "LCC"): http://support.phaseone.com/KBFiles/2118/1/LCCWin.pdf

and here is how to remove color cast in Photoshop (should be similar in applictions featuring layer modes):

Hi,

As indicated, an LCC (Lens Cast Calibration) shot will allow to address the issue with the best quality.
When you shoot Raw files, you can also use RawTherapee to do it automatically for one or many files with the "Flat field" functionality.

Cheers,
Bart
