    assuming i have 2 photo images open side by side and i want to match the
    overall col of one file to the other's. How do i do this - i'm thinking
    there must be a col sample dropper tool that i simply click somewhere on one
    file (the source) and then click somewhere on the other image (the
    destination)? Is this wishful thinking ?

    Yes, it's wishful thinking.

    Matching one image's overall color balance to another image's overall balance
    requies a human eye and a human brain. The best way to start learning to do
    this kind of color correction is to begin with learning the Curves command.

  3. Any idea where I can download those two things? Free?

    I hear you. I have to do the 'work/seeing'.

    However, you'd imagine it's not entirely impossible for a plug-in/program to
    be written that can sample the overall avarage values of rg&b and transport
    that data toanother file ?

    A recent review of the beta of Photoshop 8 in a UK Mac mag says that v8.0
    will have this kind of colour match ability. The screenshots looked as
    thought it could be a useful tool.
