Why are my pics so GREEN?
I shoot with a canon rebel xti, primarily in the AV mode, use an f/3.5-5.6 24-135mm lens for outdoor stuff..

However, my pics consistently have this GREEN hue to them? especially on sunny days. the grass/trees are already green here, but even MORE so when I download on to the computer. it's almost a lime green hue over everything. do I need a UV filter or something to help tone down the green-ness??? please help!!!..

You may need to reset the White Balance or set a custom white balance to compensate. See the manual for details..

If auto white balance doesn't solve your problem outdoors, suggest you post a picture with full shooting info.(picture style, WB, (if jpeg) etc.).JerryG.

I agree with John. Fix the White BalanceNothing is enough for the man to whom nothing is enough...

If you're using a polarizing filter and your results are green try taking shots without the polarizer. Some cheap polarizers impart a color cast..

Adding a filter, even the very best, is probably not a answer. You have to find the root cause of the green tint. It could be a cheap filter you already have in place, it could be the adjustment of your monitor, it could be the white balance of your camera, it could be many things. Simplify by minimizing variables to sort out what the issue is...

I don't have a Canon but if possible you might check some basic settings:.

Color Mode, Saturation, Vivid, More Vivid, Tone Compensation and Color Space..

I had a problem with green being a little too green - it was unrealistic. By changing some of the above settings the green was reduced..

It is possible that the problem is with your monitor, not the camera. Have you tried viewing the images on another computer?Chris R..

You might need to 'calibrate' your monitor.Bertie..

Please post an example. Do you see this green tint on the LCD on the back of the camera also? Does it show in prints? A bit more information will go a long way to finding the problem and perhaps a fix...
