What Color do you think the shirt is
« on: June 28, 2019, 03:53:06 PM »
I just downloaded this photo today and was going to start on color correction when it dawned on me that this child's shirt is probably yellow and not white.   I was just wondering what you think it is.   Thanks.

So I think yellow is probably right. To test that out, take a look at the original with what I think are reasonable color corrections, vs. the original, vs. a version where the shirt is forced to white. The rest of the image looks so wrong, I think yellow - pastel and pale - must be the color

I'm thinking a cream, leading to yellow.

This is the color that occurred after I used the levels adjustment layer on each RGB channel.

Now that I see them side by side like that I have to change my vote  ::)  Like Margie said, cream leading to yellow.

Phil, what I see when I look at your adjusted levels is a soft yellow.  Why?  Because the school I attended for high school wore uniforms.  Our shirts were a soft yellow.  Here's an old yearbook picture of the elementary kids. As you can see, it's pretty close to your adjusted levels.
