• Cyan-Red — adds cyan or red to the drawing to correct color imbalance. Move the slider to the left to add cyan and to the right to add red.

• Magenta-Green — adds magenta or green to the drawing to correct color imbalance. Move the slider to the left to add magenta and to the right to add green.
