    Read around the forums a bit before posting a question like this... And/or use the search...
    This has been asked numerous times before, and answered.

    Search for 'camera discoloration', 'camera green', 'camera blob', 'camera pink' ...


    And to be kind enough to not only say you may have been lazy, I will also give you an extra solution:
    I started using the ProCamera app, this allows you to change the white balance in your pictures.
    Since I started using this app, I am able to get rid of the pinkish hue in about 75% of my pictures
    that I know would otherwise show this hue. It has now replaced my stock camera app as a standard.

    and for me to be kind enough to show you never read my post let me explain

    the pictures aren't discoloured and they don't have a green/blue/pink haze on them

    look back at mine and i say its in every picture I take, unless the whole world now has florescent lighting inside and outside i can see how this may cause problems but wait it doesn't
    and this still isn't the problem I am having

    next time read properly before trying to act big ;)

    Not trying to act big at all. Just answering your question.

    A "weird shaped pink mark" is a general description and from what I understand from that
    description, it is (partially) the same thing I have/had. I found an answer to my problem in some
    of the threads you can find through the search, therefor my answer to your question remains.

    *EDIT*: maybe add one of your pictures so I, and other people, can see exactly what you mean.

    By saying to search for 'camera green', 'camera pink', and so on, I'm not saying your pictures have a
    green/blue/pink haze, I'm saying these threads might provide you with an answer to your question.

    As far as your quote on the fluorescent light goes, one persons 'solution' isn't necessarilly the
    correct one, counts for mine as well. I had this problem both inside as outside, especially
    now with the snow, so as far as that quote goes, this only provides a partial answer to a problem.

    That's for the on-topic part. As an off-topic: look up my posts in other threads with people
    asking questions. You will see I always try to help out in a serious way in order to provide the
    person with an answer that means something. So don't go saying I didn't read your post.

    Maybe there's just something behind the lens that you can't get to. Try to get your hands on another iPhone 4 to see if there's the same problem. If not, then it's your phone and you'll need to get it replaced.
