Color Correction in Adobe Premiere

If you ever need to correct the colors in your footage, you can do that in Premiere! And if you have still images that need color correction, you don’t have to use Photoshop, you can use Premiere for that as well.

This is the original image we will use for this tutorial:

Once your image or footage is imported into Premiere, you can go to the Effects tab on the bottom left side of the screen.

Click Video Effects and an entire dropdown menu of many effects options will appear. For this tutorial we will choose the Color Correction tab, and then Three-Way Color Corrector. Drag that effect on top of your footage or still image in the timeline.

This is what you will see when you click the Effect Controls tab at the top of your screen.Image

 

It’s up to you to decide if you’d like to balance the colors or play up one color over the rest. This is the tool I used to change the colors in the image:

This is an example of a very “blue” version of this still image:

Notice you can change the Black, Gray and White Balances of the image with this Color Correction Effect as well.

You can also import an entirely different effect if you’d like to see the image in black and white. It is pretty easy!

In the effects bin, select Image Control  and you can drag the Black & White effect over the footage in the timeline.

And this is what it will look like on the footage itself:
