I am new with Photo for Mac and need to adjust the colour balance differentially along an edge of a photo. It is a scan of a very old colour negative with substantial colour shifts close to the negative edges. I have looked into gradients, feathered regions, but neither seems to be either right or easy or I am not yet skilled enough. Can someone suggest an approach for tackling this?


Thank you in advance for any advice.

Welcome to the forum ronlangara :)


It's possible to add a Gradient Mask directly to the Colour Balance Adjustment Layer. Select the Colour Balance Adjustment Layer from the Layers Panel and select the Gradient tool from the Tools panel and drag across the layer.


Hope that helps!
