Can you do something about your camera settings? The red tinge is ruining some lovely photos.

This was my dodgy old phone. Have a newbie now so this spring should yield some better ones :)

Haha that's funny Betty. I noticed the red tinge. But still, they are brilliant images. Emma, you are "going viral" on twitter at the moment. Your sightings have been getting TONS of re-tweets. Michael B, this might be a very nice definitive image for the Yam Daisy species..

And here I am without a Twitter account to know about it! This particular photo is filled with freshly flowering Aira grass so there is actually a fair amount of red in it anyway. Would you like me to see if I can edit it (with the limited software options I have) to improve that at all?

I have Photoshop CS6 and can edit it easily.

Betty is onto it!! Bulk image manipulation in the works :)
