    Can I change the White Balance of a pic I've already taken?

    Hi, everyone, was out today shooting and after having taken a few shots I completely love, I realized later that the WB was on incandescent and not Auto, which has left the pics a little on the blue side. Can I edit the WB of a picture I've already taken somehow in the camera? Thanks so much. I have a D7500.

    I am not sure this is a D7500 specific question, but you can usually change the white balance with software.
    I know I can do it in darktable.
    Is this a jpg? or raw file?

    Oh thanks for that. I will check out Darkable. It is RAW, my understanding is that one can do more with RAW than jpg?

    if you shoot RAW then you certainly can with just about any software that processes it. Your starting point is what the camera set for WB but everything is available. Not so with JPEG.

    Welcome to the site!

    Yes, you can edit the WB of RAW images in camera. The output will be in JPG format. In the long run you might be better off getting a non-destructive editor and learning that. I also use darktable but many other use an Adobe product like Lightroom. There are pros and cons of different products. There also may be programs which came with the camera.

    Download Nikon's free RAW processor (Capture NX-D) and viewer (ViewNX-i) apps. Capture NX-D will, among many other things, allow you to change the WB from the camera setting to something else.

    If the image was saved in-camera as a raw (NEF) file, you can easily change the WB in post. JPEG.... ehhh.... not so much.
    Don't mind me... I'm out roaming around somewhere between Zone III and VII.


    Go forth and actuate!
