Good morning, everyone. I find that when I use the White Balance eyedropper, the temp/tint results are consistently a little "colder" than I would like. Is there a way of adjusting how it reads the white balance to be consistently a couple of notches warmer?

No. The eyedropper makes the spot you click on to be neutral. If that spot is cold in the image, the image as a whole will warm up. If it's warm, the image will cool down.

Try using the eyedropper and then adjusting the temp slider to taste.

Make sure you are using a calibrated monitor under proper lighting conditions. A true mid-grey subject which has had the WB dropper sampled from it will set a mathematically correct WB.

Yip for this to look right your screen has to be calibrated. it could just be that your screen is slightly cooler in colour temp?
