    In RAW you can do it no problem in post processing, but what is the correct way in photoshop to do it with jpgs? Levels, photo filters, color balance??

    And I assume you're going to lose some information in the picture the more you mess with it right?

    Color balance is one way... adjust the reds/cyans and yellow/blue accordingly.

    Another way is to adjust the red or yellow's saturation down in hue/saturation.

    Learn to use curves over levels... it gives you a bit more control if you know what you're doing.

    photo filters are easy to use, but probably not the most "professional way"

    In the levels you can set a new white, grey or black point. That is the easiest way that I have found. If there is any grey in the photo I find the grey point works best.
