White balancing when implemented correctly (like in Lightroom) ensures that whites stay white under the new illuminant, essentially mimicking the chromatic adaption performed by the human visual system.

The slider in Lightroom is not used to adjust the color of the light that lit the scene. That light has already been recorded. Rather, it is setting the correction for the light in the scene. The correction provided by any raw converter needs to be the "reciprocal" of the light that illuminated the scene. That is, the correction needs to be on the opposite ...

I'm not real familiar with the Lark filter in Instagram nor am I familiar with the labels Gimp puts on certain controls, but based on the images above, here are the differences that I see between the first image (which looks much better to my ...
