Correcting the wrong white balance in a JPEG file can be a very time-consuming, though feasible, task. However, I prefer to set the white balance as soon as possible, even when shooting in RAW. This allows me to more accurately assess the exposure on individual channels using a color histogram, and in addition, my images look more aesthetically pleasing even before converting to JPEG.
