Artificial light is a different colour than daylight. Our eyes compensate, so we don't notice it much. Most digital cameras can compensate too, but whether they do or not depends on the settings. The setting you want to investigate is color 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 flourescent light. The best setting for most people is Auto, if your camera has it. That will let your camera decide, and usually it will get it about right.

Incorrect white balance. I'm not familiar with your camera...check your manual to see if you can change the white balance setting.

I have a Samsung SL420 camera. Outdoor photos are great. Indoor photos colors always have a gold hew to them. What am I doing wrong. I always use the auto setting for both indoor & outdoor p


You will need to adjust the "white balance". Your camera may be able to do this by pointing it at a gray surface, and setting something. I don't have your camera instructions, but it's a normal adjustment for indoors.

ProBook 6450b mute button on keyboard is always orange


Is the volume muted or not when the light is orange? If it is muted then use the icon on task bar and increase the volume, to see if color changes. If it is not muted and a change of volume does not affect the color of the light, maybe that is the normal color for it. Did you read the manual and find that orange means trouble. On my computer, the light for my WifI is always orange.
The speakers may be muted by an Fn +Fx key sequence, or some additional buttons on the computer.

Problem with color on my lumix dmc-fh25 camera


Set the camera's white balance to match the lighting. Most indoor lighting has a yellowish cast to it, while by default cameras are set for sunlight.

My pictures have a purple tint to them


You're either using old/expired film, or taking photos during dusk. Color film is balanced for daylight photography. Using it under conditions other than that will result in varying color casts on the resulting images.

Fluorescent lighting: Greenish
Indoor bulbs: Reddish/orange
Outdoor at night/dusk: Blueish/purpla
Ourdoor at dawn: Pink/blue

Or, you may have just gotten bad print work done. Try a different lab.

My Canon G11 - most indoor pics have a strong yellow-orange hue. What can I do to correct this or is the camera broken?


Light from ordinary light bulbs has a strong yellow-orange cast, which our eyes tend to adjust for without thought. Check the white balance setting on your camera. This is to adjust the camera for the color of the light, to try to make white come out white, hence the name "white balance." Set the white balance to incandescent (light-bulb icon) for indoor shooting under light bulbs, or to automatic to let the camera take its best attempt.

Try experimenting with the white balance setting. Taking pictures in bright sunlight with the incandescent setting will give your pictures a very blue cast, making things look a little colder. There are other settings, such as flourescent.
