What affects photo colors?

Color cast
Color cast can ruin an image by creating an unwanted color shift. This can be caused by light reflected from a nearby object. But it can be fixed using the right filter in a picture color editor.

Haze removes most of the contrast from a photo, giving it a flat, washed-out look. Haze often occurs when shooting through glass, and it can also be fixed with a picture color changer.

Desaturated colors
Desaturated colors appear due to camera limitations and cause a photo to come out cool, warm, washed out, desaturated, or dull. You can easily recover colors using a powerful color changer photo editor like Luminar Neo.
