    My girlfriend's camera is a piece of shit and sometimes it takes off color pictures for no reason. Well, I'm sure it was due to the light in the room at the time, but still, the camera is a huge piece of shit.

    This picture is part of a 10 pic set and most of the pictures are priceless. It really sucks that they came out like this. What can I do in photoshop to fix the colors? Or are the colors just totally screwed and I'm stuck with them? The walls are supposed to be pink.

    1) post pics of your girlfriend

    2) I just hit Auto Color in Picasa and it fixed most of it

    Looks great. I'll try photoshop. If I suck at it I'll PM one of you guys.

    That's a last resort option.

    Fixed all these today. Some came out a little bright, but it's still much better than off colors. Thanks for the tip with auto color.

    I really need to learn how to do better PP in photoshop.
