    Has anyone had this issue? Last night a took a couple of pictures using the flash in a dim room and people came out really orange looking. Anyone else had that issue?

    Well thats red eye, iphones software doesnt handle it. Once you transfer it any photo editing software can fix it.
    Dunno whats up with the orange though, Not having that problem so I cant help :/

    Hmmm weird. I wonder if it's a defect on the camera. Day pictures are fine but it must be something to do with the color processing in low light situations.

    I noticed the off orange color from a couple photos (but not all) last night as well. Has to be just some color correction being done in the phone. The free photoshop mobile app does some easy color correction right in the phone.

    Yeah I was fooling around with that last night. Still kind of annoying though. I know it's only a camera on the phone but i'd rather not have to adjust every night picture taken on it.

    I might wait a couple of weeks and check it out at the genius bar and see what they say.

    Yep, took some photos in a bar and everyone came out looking like a cast member of Jersey Shore. Some adjustments vin Photoshop can cure that.

    Can anyone with Photoshop knowledge provide a brief tutorial on how to make these look better?

    I took one night picture so far and it did not look bad. My dog's eyes were eerie though. She's eerie anyway!

    Same here. Seems like a problem with the white balance. Daylight is fine, but any type of artificial light, including the flash, is very yelllow.

    So what are people specifically doing to the pictures to remedy this, desaturation? Change the tint? (using Photoshop mobile of course).
