After spending too much time with levels and curves, it  occurred to me that 
perhaps one of you would know a good approach in PS to  correct for daylight 
film shot in normal home tungsten  lighting?


If you have Photoshop CS, you can go to Image, Adjustments, Photo  Filter.  
If not, another approach is to open levels, and take the white  eyedropper, 
click it on something that is supposed to be white.
Still another is to futz around with color balance also under  adjustments.
One of the things you can do to improve the stuff before you shoot, is to  
relamp all your tungsten sources in the house with GE Reveal lightbulbs.   
are closer to daylight in character. Since I shoot lots of 800   Fuji, I 
that helped a lot.
