    Hi all! I have some digital images that are photos of actual print photos
    taken in a studio (the digitals) using tungsten lighting (3200 deg Kelvin)
    and the tungsten white balance setting with an Olympus D-460zoom. The
    results are horrible. Everything is purple'ish and washed out looking.
    Here's a sample:

    I've played around with the curve settings in Photoshop 7 but have had no
    luck at recreating any realistic color. Has anyone had this same problem?
    And if so, were you able to correct it in PS? and how?

    Thanks so much (in advance)!

    John

    it's for underwater colors but a change or two may get it to do what you
    need.

    Puzzling. I would suggest the camera is out of whack, but I assume it works
    in other situations with tungsten lighting.

    Do post back when you figure this out.

    Thanks - it didn't "fix" the problem... I'm not sure it can be fixed {sigh}
    maybe it's the camera - I'm going to try modifying some of the steps to see
    if I can get it to look like I want - I'll let you know if it works. John
