Your white balance setting is too warm. Try setting a custom white balance or move your current white balance towards the "Tungsten" end. "Cloudy" is a good start.

Why do my in door pictures come out looking very red or oranfe


Unless you tell it otherwise, your camera sets its colour profile based on the colours as seen under natural daylight. If you are using artificial light, the colours will actually be different. Tungsten lighting gives a a yellow/orange colour and fluorescent tends more towards the green. You need to find the White Balance control in your camera's menu and set it for the lighting in your scene. IF you have several differnet types of light, then you might need to work on the image in a photo editing package such as Photoshop or PS Elements.

Search Google for articles on lighting colour casts.

Colour balance for majority of photo is good but sky or white goes to pink. Colour balance is obviously not the problem. Help?


How about White Balance? Taking a photo outdoors, for example, white your WB is set on "Fluorescent Light" will turn your images bluish. To set WB, see the owners manual.

Took extraordinary pictures with nikon d40 but can't edit them


You have your camera set to RAW format. It is not a compressed file, it is a full size file. Opening this in editing programs will either crash your computer or will refuse to open because of the size of the file. They are not damaged but your computer cannot handle the files. You should take them to a photo shop and have them put the files on a cd and consult your manual to change your camera to JPEG format.

My d40 has a image in viewfinder, will not take picture.


What lens are you using with the D40? Is it an AF-S lens? And is the Mirror Lockup on? Chech the Custom Settings menu. If mirror lockup is on, turn it off.

Nikon D40 shutter speed problem


The D40 will not take great photos of an indoor event without blurring or noise. You need a fast lens and a high ISO using the popup flash or on camera flash would be ideal but some of these events you can not use flash. All these images I shot with a Nikon D40. http://www.facebook.com/home.php?src=fftb#/pages/Keller-TX/Raving-Design/78762448229?v=photos&ref=ts Learn to use the camera for ur events.

Colour Cast


Updated section
This red issue has been bugging me over the last week. I have now created over 50 A4 prints of my test file and it was after reading a post from Dan P that the answer came to me. I had been trying to correct the over saturated reds by reducing it in curves, levels and colour balance. Of course this was not the way to go, unless the image has an overall cast. The better method is to enter into Selective Colour within Photoshop and adjust just the red only. The values I have used are Cyan + 15 (this reduces the red), Magenta -5 (removes the remaining traces), Yellow +10 (removes the blue and warms up the skin again), Black -15 (lifts the image). Save the settings and reload them on future images. Create an action and use one of your Function keys to apply the Selective Colours. Incorporate the print command within the same action, this way you can be certain that the selective colour will be applied each time you print. This may not be the ideal solution, but for me it will do for the time being, until Canon come up with a new profile. I expect to make colour adjustments on most images and this is just one of those steps.
8500_06.jpg ink.jpg Use the Selective colour adjustment - it works The ink levels after 55 A4 prints - I don't think so final-test.jpg final-reels.jpg As near perfect as I can get it Reels are now spot on Note: The above solution is a work-a-round which cures the excess red, once you apply the Selective Colour adjustment the screen image will not look right. The adjustment is applied to correct the printed version. Like so many things digital (and analog) you have to make adjustments to suit your own preferences. The strong vivid colours produced by the ip8500 will appeal to some, others may want to tweak their settings.
As a final note, I have just looked at the ink levels after 55 A4 prints and wow, this printer only uses the light Cyan and Magenta, the rest of the colours are all unused. I don't think so somehow. Canon, I think this does indicate that you have a problem with the driver and have another look at the profiles while you are fixing that.
Would I buy this printer?
Given that creating a new profile is not a major problem and I am sure a new one will follow very shortly, then yes I would buy it. Using Photoshop I have managed to correct the colours to suit my taste, however, some may like the bolder colours out of the box. The ip8500 features and image quality makes this printer stand out from the competition.
Price - £329
Pros:
Excellent photographic print quality
Lots of useful features
Speed
Separate ink tanks
Compact design

Cons:
The PictBridge port can't be used to transfer images to a computer
Colour needs to be sorted out
Black plastic case that reminds me of a cats coffin.
