Artificial light is a different colour than daylight. Our eyes compensate, so we don't notice it much. Digital cameras can compensate too, but whether they do or not depends on the settings. The setting you want to investigate is colour balance. If this is set to daylight, it will give an orange cast to pictures taken in tungsten lighting, and a greenish cast to pictures taken in fluorescent light. If it is set to artificial light, pictures taken in daylight will have a bluish cast. The best setting for most people is Auto. That will let your camera decide, and usually it will get it about right.

SOURCE: yellow tint on images

When i go to the white balance option on the menu, it says "This option is not available with current setting. " I haven't set anything different from the factory settings. Could there be a reason it's not giving me this option?

It could be your photo settings, check the "Light" setting in the menu, try changing it to "Tungsten, indoors or Fluorescent" which ever is the most appropriate.

Sounds like a white balance problem caused by the background lighting in the room (flourescent or incandescent lights, the camera gets confused in compensating for them). Look in your camera's menus for "white balance" selection. Try setting the white balance to either fluorescent or incandescent lighting, and see if that corrects the problem.

What would make my pictures and videos come out with a lot of blue tint?


Hi there,
Regarding Blue tint of Photos and Videos - This is tied directly to your White Balance Settings. When you White Balance is set to Auto, the Camera determines the best setting to use to for White Balance (How much Blue or Orange needs to be added for best White). To get a Blue Tint, the Camera's White Balance is most likely set manually to something like Incandescent or Indoor. First you will want to see that your White Balance is set to Auto - If it was not, then Auto should fix your problem. But If it is alrready on Auto, and you are still getting Blue tint both Indoor and Outdoor, then the Camera's Software may be faulty.
Hope this helps!

My pictures have a reddish tint to them


If your pictures that have the reddish tint are taken indoors, the tint is likely caused by the lighting. You can set up a 'white balance" adjustment to fix that.

Green pictures


Assuming the camera is not faulty the most frequent reason for a green tint is the selection of the wrong white balance in the camera menu. The menu will contain "AWB", "daylight", sometimes represented by a stylised sun logo and indoor. If you use "daylight" for indoor photos the pictures will have a green cast. Select "AWB" for generally acceptable results. If the pictures have a green cast on outdoor pictures you have a problem

Having problems with quality of pictures taken inside....they all have a "yellow" color tint to them. Any suggestions? Camera takes excellent outside pictures.


Check your white balance setting. Indoor incandescent bulbs have a yellow color that we normally aren't aware of but shows up in a photo. Usually, when you have your camera set on auto white balance, the camera can correct for it but if it can't, you can set the white balance for tungsten/indoor light.

You have a white balance issue. Somewhere in the menu system is a command to alter the white balance - for indoor shooting by artificial light (i.e. light bulbs) it should be set to 'tungsten'. Using flash would overcome this, but the pictures would look very harsh and unnatural.

When i take a picture with the flash, it has a yellow tint to it. Why?


Most likely your white balance setting needs to be adjusted. You didn't specify the model of your camera, so I can't tell you exactly how to change it (your manual should say).
Your camera should have several settings:
"A" or "Auto"
"Daylight/Sun"
"Tungsten" or "Indoors" or "Incandescent"
"Fluorescent"

and possibly also:
"Flash"
"Cloudy" or "Shade"

When taking flash pictures, the "Flash" setting should be best. If you don't have a flash setting, then "Daylight" or "Sun" will be the best.

Human eyes adjust quickly and easily to different colors of light, but cameras see light as it is, so indoor light will look yellow, outside bluish, fluorescent greenish, etc. So digital cameras shift the colors in the image to try to make white objects appear white like they would to your eye. But sometimes they mess up and don't get it quite right. That is where the manual white balance settings come in. If you play with these settings, then you will find you can improve the color quality of many of your pictures.

Yellowish tint on faces, shadows, gold backgrounds


Check the white balance setting of the camera. As you have a yellow cast, it could be because you are using it in Fluorescent (or Tubelight) setting. Changing this to Auto should solve this problem.

Take time to get used to the settings, you may think the screen looks dull at first. The truth is most people have way too much contrast on their TVs.
These settings will also work for Cable or Dish hookups, in which case you may change the Noise Reduction option to Medium to reduce signal noise.
