    I've been wondering for a long time now how to get this kind of "white" through post-processing. (The ones on the windows to be exact.) If anybody knows how to get a result like this, please tell me how?

    Thank you!

    A couple of ways ...

    1. Open a selective color adjustment layer. In the whites panel, adjust the color sliders to get the off-white that you want. You can also increase black levels slightly to make whites a bit less bright if you prefer.
    2. With levels of curves, double click the white dropper. In the color picker that opens, change the hue from white to the off-white that you want. Click OK, then click the white dropper on a white area of the image.
