Changing a photo temperature can be a fun way to create a mood or experiment with lighting in a photo. 

First, open your photo (File Open).

Next, in the adjustments panel, click on photo filter.

This will apply an adjustment layer and a layer mask in your layers panel .

After that, experiment by cooling the photo down. Experiment with intensity. 


To reset click the reset button at the bottom.
