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.

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:
