Hi,

I think this can be resolved by adjusting the WHITE BALANCE.
The color of the subject differs depending on lighting conditions. For
instance, when daylight, the setting sun or tungsten lighting are reflected
on white paper, the shade of white produced will be slightly different for
each. By adjusting the white balance, you can achieve more naturallooking
colors.

To adjust it,
1. Select top MENU-> [WB]
2. Select the approriate White balance setting according to the environment.
To know about all the different white balance setting download and
read "Advanced Manual for Olympus 800" manual given in this site,

Refer page no: 50
www.retrevo.com/search/v2/jsp/mytrevo/myTrevo.jsp?page=man


Note:
White balance may not be effective under some special light sources.
Under that circumstances , you can use the photoshop or any other software to edit your pictures to get it right.........


Hope my info solves your problem,
Thanx for using fixya,
Good luck.

Get your camera to work on the proper mode sometimes if the camera is set on the night mode it catches the extra blue.just transfer it to normal mode from night mode and your camera will work properly.

Hi,

Sounds like wrong shooting mode for your subject and improper white balance. First off, turn the white balance to full sunlight isf shooting in sunight and use the creative modes ( P, Tv, Av, M ) since white balance reverts to AWB in non creative modes. check exposure compensation, check iso,

It sounds like a White Balancing problem. I'd guess if it's set on Auto WB, then you'll need to do it manually. Some digital cameras tend to produce that blue tint when left to white balance themselves.

If you don't understand completely let us know the exact model of the camera and I'm sure somebody can talk you through it!

I need to get rid of the blue tint on all my pictures


Have you checked your camera's white balance setting ? Try setting it to 'Auto' and see if that helps. If not, then there may be a fault in the camera's electronics, which would indicate repair or replacement.

A blue line keeps showing up wheni take pictures


You only can be sure it is on the sensor, when also on the pictures is a blue line. To check, zoom in on a picture, or evaluate the picture on your computer.
If the line is on the picture too, you can be sure the cause is to be found in, or close by the sensor.

My pictures have a blue tint...I have a DSC-S75


If you took the pictures in fluorescent lighting they will have a blue cast. To correct that, you need to set the white balance option in your camera. Pictures of a snow landscape and others will also have a blue cast at times, unless you set the white balance correctly. There are many places online that discuss these settings for phtography in general.

All my photos have a blue tone help


If you're using an E-500, this one should be easy. It sounds like a simple white balance issue. Just turn the camera on and, without going to the menu screen, press the WB button (the up arrow above the OK button). Change the WB setting to "AUTO" and you should be all set.
