Hi All,

I'm looking to upload a few photos from EMA, though I would like to ask your opinion on something I have noticed on a small number of the photos.

Does this photo appear to have a red tint?

Big version: Width: 1024 Height: 683 File size: 439kb


Or is it me? If it has, im not so sure about how to get rid of it, could anyone give some hints?

Thanks,
Cosmic

Yes, absolutely!
The sky looks rather pink-ish to me.
Easily fixed though!  thumbsup 



In thrust I trust.

Cosmic.

On my screen, it has a red cast, and is blurry and soft.

I do not know how to get rid of it, but I think this picture is not A.net-worthy.

If you're not trying to fix the photo for A.net, then sorry that I cannot help you with the colour.

There are other Photos from the same time which also appear to have a red tint, and they are of better quality some of them.

Thanks for the replies,

OK, I've just had another go at adjusting this and it is becoming very annoying. I've treid curves, colour balance and read online photoshop guides, but with no luck, I can't get rid of that red tint. Looking back at my Photos, most of them taken in they sky have this, which is a shame really as the originals are good quality. Can they be saved?

Here is the Photo I would like on Airliners.net, a new Boeing 757 for Thomas Cook, G-TCBA.

This is my best attempt:

I can see the red is still there. Would anyone like to shed some light on this?

Thanks,
Cosmic

How do you fix this?

Go to Colour balance (Ctrl + B) and select the highlights
I found that -6 cyan, +12 blue took the cast out completely.
The image is a little soft and a touch overexposed too but strangely it looked much better once the colour was corrected, though I do not understand why !

Hi Mick,

I am going to try that out in a bit and get back to you, hopefully that will solve the situation. Thanks for looking into that for me  Smile

Another question I have is regarding photoshop, and how it displays photos when editing. The originals looks different to how they are shown in photoshop.

Original:



In Photoshop:


Photoshop has always done this since I started. When I edit others' Photos, it doesn't do it sometimes though. Can you adjust how photoshop displays the photo?

Thanks,
Cosmic

Thats because its viewing at a certain percentage. Tends to do that above when you are viewing under 100%

Click the magnifying glass button in the tools bar and then go to the top and click actual pixels.

That's it, thanks for telling me.

I've done 2 versions of the Thomas Cook B752, which one do you prefer? The colour looks corrected now.

Big version: Width: 1200 Height: 900 File size: 752kb


Big version: Width: 1024 Height: 768 File size: 582kb


Are anymore adjustments needed?

Thanks,

Hmm. IMO still something red. Is Thomas Cooks livery white and blue? This looks yellow and blue...

Red-ish skies.

Here is the one I have in the queue:

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/big/ready/GTCBA_TCX_EGNX_JUN06.jpg

I don't think it looks yellow, but it's still red isn't it?  Sad

Maybe I should not go any further wiht this photo, but I keep hearing of how easy it is to get rid of it. Plus most of my 'in the air' shots have it.

Any ideas? How can I avoid this happening in the first place? It's ruined photos of a few aircraft which I wouldn't have minded uploading.

Thanks,
Cosmic

I can still see a weird colour cast. What's your white balance setting? "AWB" should help.

What time of the day was this? Surely it's not worth taking our a colour tint if in fact, it was there at the time of the shot.

Respected users.... If my replies are useful, then by all means...

It was about 2pm I think. Funnily enough, I was speaking to my Dad about this, and he said the same thing. The sky could have had a reddish tint in the first place. I notice the Aircraft hasn't got the red tint.

It was on cloudy. I was trying out new things, so switched the AWB off for a change.
