Adjust the colors in a picture

If the colors in your digital pictures don't look right, you can correct or enhance them by using Photo Gallery. Photo Gallery gives you control over three color settings:

  • Color Temperature. Affects the overall tone of a picture by making it appear warmer (red) or cooler (blue).

  • Tint. Removes the color cast from a picture by adding or removing green.

  • Saturation. Adjusts the vividness of colors in a picture.

To adjust picture colors

  1. Open Windows Photo Gallery by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Photo Gallery.

  2. Click the picture you want to correct, and then click Fix.

  3. Click Auto Adjust.

    After a few moments, your picture's colors, as well as brightness and contrast, will be adjusted.

  4. Click Back to Gallery to automatically save the changes to your picture.


  • If you don't like the Auto Adjust results, click Adjust Color, and then use the Color Temperature, Tint, and Saturation sliders to make the changes yourself. You can also click Undo to remove changes made by Auto Adjust.
