    Default Yellowish prints

    I send some of my pics (aft editing using CS2) for printing at color labs and found my pics having yellowish effect (warm tone). I have not adjusted the WB or use filters (during editing) and it looks fine on my comp and laptop though...i even tried different color labs. Pls enlighten me

    Is your monitor calibrated? It seems wierd that even at different color labs you would get the same effect unless it is a photo that most print operators would treat it as one which would look better with a warmer tone. Try printing with no color correction (by the lab) if still like that means your monitor is far off.

    This is most likely a case of your monitors not being calibrated.
    Even the most basic calibrator would correct this to a large extent.
    Colour labs calibrate their printers and monitors on a regular basis, even everyday, so it's unlikely that there's something wrong with their printers.

    Most probably you are a guy who don't like warm colours. Thus, all your monitors you prefer a cooler tone. And when you do PS on these 'biased' monitors, then all your pictures all turn out yellowish loor.

    Invest in what? You just have to calibrate it yourself lah. Take a print, try and adjust your curve, presto!

    Andy's approach is the poor-man's way. While many may scorn it, it does work. Do note that most monitors have a color temp setting too. Push your color temp to 5000-5400K range and you may find it closer to reality. But do use the test print as a double-check.
