Hi guys,

 

yesterday i shot Sun with Astrosolar and this is the result. 

Now, few years ago i remember that i used Photoshop to make fake color on a white Solar picture. Now i don't remember how to do that. Do you guys know how to color a Sun Picture taken with Astrosolar in white light?

 

Thanks.

This is a question that could be addressed more specifically in the "solar observing and imaging forum" (confusing name).  But a basic pseudo color job is easy enough.  You could create a levels adjustment layer in Photoshop, and then, leave the red channel alone, but change the gamma (middle slider) of green to 0.7 and blue to 0.1.  Using your image above, this yields the following, which you could then play around with further if you don't like the color.
