I am really new to using Lightroom, but I figured I would give it a shot.. Anyhow, when you are fixing the WB, how do you do it in lightroom??

I was using the wb dropper tool, and it telly you to click on something "neutral" with the dropper.. What color do you usually click on?? White? Grey? Just curious..

Thanks!!

If it is a RAW image I just usually do the auto WB fix and then adjust to taste if needed. I never use the dropper

Thanks Kate, unfortunately its a raw image, I was just curious to see what other people would consider a "neutral" color.. I think some use white and some use grey.. but not 100% sure.. Does the auto work on jpegs?

I shoot in Raw, but I still use the dropper and start with white, if no white I use black
