Step 1: Rename the layer
Rename your layer then we're ready to add warmth to the image.
Step 2: Add a photo filter
To add warmth we're going to add a photo filter. To do this go to Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Photo Filter. Or you can click on the black and white circle in the layers palette and pick photo filter. In the New Layer window that opens make sure colour is set to none, mode is normal and opacity is 100% then click OK.
Step 3: Adjust the photo filter
Adjust the density slider to add warmth to the image. We used warming filter(85) but there are other filters you can try. You can also pick a colour instead of one of the pre-set filters too. You want to preserve the luminosity so make sure this box is tick then move the density slider to taste. We moved it to 40%. It's as simple as that.
