Color Match is a useful tool when you are uncertain about the final color balance of a work in progress or when you want to make a drastic color change in your work after your are done.

Adjust the colors of your work to match those of an imported image or gradient.

1. Basics usage of Color Match

1. Select the Tonal Correction layer

Color Match allows you to perform tonal correction on a single raster layer with the expression color is set to Color.

By creating a selection, you can also apply the adjustment only to that area.

 

To correct the color tone of a specific layer, select that layer on the “Layer” palette.

Hint: How to make multiple layers into one layer

If the elements you want to use Tonal Correction on are spread across multiple layers, combine them into one layer and then use Color Match.

To do this, either copy the target layer and then select Merge selected layers, or if you want to perform it on all visible layers, perform Merge visible to new layer. See the following article for more details.

3. Apply preset images and gradients to your work

Select the reference source for the Tonal Correction from Image and Gradient.
