Every picture I take indoors has a yellow tint. What can I do to stop this?


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.

When I take photos with my finepix s1000fd the colours are hardly ever accurate, it will pick out some colours and make them very bright, but the rest of the photo will be a greyish colour. Some photos...


Hello - You will find this happens mostly in Automatic mode which needs a better spread of light.
The grey background is when another color has been highlighted/increased and the background get saturated out (usually the sky goes grey) or the clouds go white.
Try going into Scenic settings ..ie.. vivid , sunset , soft etc and keep that setting open while taking shots.
or -- Use a Neutral density filter where there are bright and dark spots in frame.
or - Use the aep button to increase a stop before taking a picture..
AND -- get into S or A or Manual mode .
I called Fuji Tech support UK and they admitted the S1000 cameras where 1 stop low on light in the fully auto mode, because it was easier to AD light afterwards in software,

Pictures have a hypersensitivity to yellow. Parts


This is typically caused when taking pictures indoors with artificial lighting (ie. not the sun). This is because of the different color temperature of the light versus sunlight. The camera can somewhat automatically adjust for this, but most cameras (including professional cameras) do not meter indoor lighting perfectly.

Often setting your white balance manually on the camer to Florescent or Incandecent depending on the light source will yield perfect or near perfect results. Some other light sources such as CFLs and LEDs have different light temperatures and you will need to manually adjust the light temperature. For instructions on doing this refer to pages 84 and 85 of the user manual. It is available here, if needed:

What is and how do i adjust the white balnceon my fujitsu S550 digital camers?


Adjustment is in the menu screen, you shouldn't have to go very deep as it is a frequently adjusted setting.
White Balance is how the camera interprets white depending on ambient lighting. Have you ever noticed how when you are taking pictures inside at night and all of the light comes from lamps and the flash that your pictures have a yellow look? Take a picture under flourescent lamps and the pictures look different as well? How about outside? Best true color rendition on the picture taken outside, but different than the others.
White balance is a way for the photographer to adjust the tone of the picture to accurately reproduce the true colors seen in real life in the picture. Most cameras have an automatic white balance and they usually work fairly well. But for the best results, set it manually. Your whites will be white and skin tones appear accurate.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

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.

Lousy, yellow indoor pictures


Have you tried setting the white balance to match your indoor lighting condtions (flourescent or incandescent indoor lighting)? If not, try it. You didn't mention what model camera you have, but look in your manual. It should mention how to adjust white balance.

Accurate color


Digital cameras rely on "white balance" to control total overall color accuracy as processed for the final image. Colors are greatly affected by light. For example, look at any wall in your home or office and you can easily see that shadows will make the color of the wall appear to be different shades. Sunlight has a very different effect on colors than incandescent light or florescent lights. Digital cameras start with white (the absence of color) to measure the effect of light and adjust the metering (measurement and accuracy) of all the other colors. Of course, white in a poorly lit room may appear gray or even yellow to some digital cameras. So how can you get accurate color? 1) Turn the Mode Dial to MANUAL MODE (Red camera icon with an "M") 2) Use the Arrow Down on the ENTER Button to select W/B (White Balance) 3) Press the center on the ENTER Button to select and adjust W/B (White Balance) 4) Use the Arrow Right (once), then Press and Hold the Arrow Down. Note: Continue to Press and Hold the Arrow Down. There will be a pause as you reach the bottom of the common preset conditions. Then a new "hidden" option will appear. 5) Once PRE SET appears, Press the center of the ENTER Button to select it. 6) A Special screen will appear. Point the camera direct at something WHITE, like a piece of paper, a white wall or a white shirt. Regardless of the lighting conditions, the camera will accept this "white object" as the new starting point "base of reference" or "True White". 7) Press the Shutter Button to program the new "True White" setting. 8) Press the center of the ENTER Button to accept and continue photography. These new settings will be saved as PRE SET True White conditions in Manual Photography Mode until you change the settings with another selection. This will not "go away" when the camera is turned off. These settings do not impact Auto Photography Mode.
