Yellowish color is due to the light your flash gives when taking pictures. i suggest you bring that to a service center and let them take a look at your camera...probably needs a bulb replacement.

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.

Hi. When I use my Olympus SP 570 UZ in an Indoor Party Hall, I get Orange Tinge or Orange Coloured Photographs. Please Help me to avoid this,

This is called "white balance"-- the indoor lights have a bit of a yellowish tint, while sunlight has more of a blue tint.
Try changing the white balance to Auto-- if you get bad results on Auto, try using the Indoor or Incandescent settings. You may have the white balance set on the "outdoor" or "flash" setting.

All of my indoor photos I take with my Nikon Coolpicx 570 are tinted yellow. How can I fix this?

Incandescent lighting is yellow and shows up that way on photos. That's why digital cameras have white balance controls. Usually, auto white balance works ok but, sometimes you need to go into the settings and choose incandescent white balance to remove the yellow as you take the pics.

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"
"Tungsten" or "Indoors" or "Incandescent"

and possibly also:
"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.

Exposure dark / yellowish tint

The noise reduction aspect of this camera can cause some of this--you may wish to reduce the noise reduction in the quality settings of the camera (see your manual for directions) further, if you are open to post-production fixes you may wish to use a program like Adobe Lightroom2 to correct some of this. Finally you may wish to shoot indoors using the RAW or RAW+JPEG setting. Doing so will give you more control over post-production color correction, and somewhat less artifacting from the noise reduction software.

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.

Blurring/grainy pictures, and lens error


here are some tips that may be the reason why you are having those blurry, grainy and yellowish pics.

It is important to keep your lens away from excessive heat (i.e., hot car in summertime or a heat source in a home). This will help prevent the greases, used in most lens barrels, from breaking down into an oil that can run inside your lens and cause overexposure by slowing down the diaphragm.

Use rear element lens caps on your lenses when they are not on the body. Wide angle lenses, by design, have rear elements that extend out farther then the lens barrel and are susceptible to wear, which can ruin sharpness.

Always use a filter or lens shade (hood) to protect the front element.

Never, ever, oil your lens. A minute amount of oil on the diaphragm blades will cause them to operate slowly.

hope this helps
