Photoshop: Auto-correct features should recognize unique conditions (such as sunsets).

It would be nice if the auto-color-balance/auto-levels features were able to detect sunset/underwater images when auto-correcting. I batch thousands of images everyday. The algorithms of Adobe programs are usually pretty impressive, but underwater and sunset images almost always end up color distorted.

Interesting idea, but there are thousands of possible "unique conditions".

And even underwater photography varies a lot with the lighting and depth (and whether you brought a pro flash or not).

Hmm, we'll have to think about that one.

I would have to agree that there would be numerous types to fall under that description. Maybe its only the case in my line of work (restoring digitized slide film), but sunsets and underwater shots are by far the two most common types of images we see get distorted. Underwater shots almost always turn red in the dark spots after auto-levels, which is usually a quick fix if you're not too concerned about detail (slide the color balance back to cyan off of red, or drop the red lightness), but its just tedious. I realize this probably wouldn't be an easy fix and may only benefit a small group. I appreciate the consideration nonetheless.
