Hello all, I'm currently working on finishing up a project that is using a lot of still images that have been animated using After Effects CS5.5. I have been working with temp images and swapping them out with the master versions once they come in. My question is primarily concerning color balancing and correction using photoshop. In premiere and final cut I am used to using scopes to achieve white and color balance for video, but have not found a similar tool in photoshop to visually check rgb or cmyk balance of a still image. I have been manually color balancing using adjustment layers, but that seems rather imprecise for what I need to achieve.

My question is: what is the best method for accurately checking color balance and correcting images to be used in my comps. Photoshop seemed the logical choice but now that seems like a butcher's knife when I need a scalpel.

Thanks in advance. Fyi, I do not have color finesse.

Why not? It comes with After Effects.

Here are some resources to get you started with color correction and color grading in After Effects (and Premiere Pro):
